Metro has been actively working to cultivate diversity, advance racial equity and practice inclusion throughout all the agency’s work since 2010. In 2012 the Metro Council approved the first Diversity Action Plan (DAP). In 2014, the Metro Chief Operating Officer brought together the diversity and equity programs, and some of the inclusion functions, to form the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Program. In June 2016 the Metro Council approved the Strategic Plan to Advance Racial Equity, Diversity and Inclusion and staff are in the process of implementing the 5-year plan.

The DEI program has identified a set of fundamental skills, knowledge, and abilities as essential for the professional development needs of Metro employees for the advancement of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) goals at Metro. Currently, Metro offers a range of trainings, workshops or other types of learning engagements but is seeking to expand its current training and facilitation offerings and make coaching available for staff.

The DEI Program requires training and facilitation assistance due to the wide variety of topics and subject areas that are needed in order to successfully implement this work. On an on-call, as-needed basis, trainers and coaches will provide services to help Metro staff learn about specific racial equity and inclusion subjects. Facilitators will help Metro staff to design, conduct and evaluate trauma informed, accessible meetings and/or processes to advance diversity, equity and inclusion projects.
