Local community forum on state diversity plan set for March 9

Gov. Ralph Northam’s administration will host a community forum next month in Charlottesville at which residents can provide input on Virginia’s first-ever Strategic Plan for Diversity and Inclusive Excellence.

According to a news release, the forum will be led by Janice Underwood, the state’s chief diversity officer, who will present a draft template of a plan intended to “advance visible diversity, equity and inclusion for state government agencies.” The forum also will offer ways that other sectors can participate, including nonprofit organizations and local municipalities, businesses and school districts.

The forum, which is one of five across the state, will take place at Charlottesville High School from 6 to 8:30 p.m. March 9.
