The Diversity Council will engage the community of Bristol as ambassadors of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.

To cultivate an environment that embraces multi-cultural differences in a welcoming and open space.

Our purpose is to engage with the Bristol community and City Departments to create awareness, access and opportunities that will support an inclusive environment for all Bristol residents and business owners.

*Connect with residents and business owners of Bristol to provide them opportunities to voice their experiences.
*Coordinate with City Departments and staff on justice, equity, diversity and inclusion best practices they should be considering when making decisions.
*Identify inequities in City policies and procedures and coordinate with City leaders to dismantle systematic barriers.
*Create opportunities for cultural awareness and bringing the community together to celebrate diversity.
