Board of Commissioners

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Community Advisory Committee

The Diversity, Equity & Inclusion (DEI) Community Advisory Committee was created by the Kalamazoo County Board of Commissioners. The purpose of this committee is to discuss and propose strategies and best practices to discourage and prevent discriminatory practices within the County and the community we serve and to sustain a welcoming and enriching environment within Kalamazoo County Government. 

The  Committee will be requested to examine the County’s (internal organization and/or external community interactions) policies, practices, and procedures and may coordinate with staff, the Courts, and/or Elected Officials to make recommendations to the Board of Commissioners. The 9-member committee will reflect the diverse community of Kalamazoo County.  

The first topic of engagement will be with the County Reparations committee. 

Further information can be obtained by calling the Board of Commissioners Office at 269-384-8111.
