The Diversity Deficit: Municipal Employees in Metro Boston @ Online - Zoom
Jul 14 @ 9:00 am – 10:30 am

Our municipal workforce is much less diverse than the region it serves. For younger employees of color, the imbalance is even more extreme.

On Tuesday, July 14, you’re invited to an important virtual dialogue on diversity in the Greater Boston municipal workforce. Join us to hear about MAPC’s important new research, how can we fix the problem, and why we must.
We’ll be joined by regional and national experts on race and equity, including:
  • Seleeke Flingai, Lead Researcher and Report Author
  • Dr. Yvonne Spicer, Mayor of Framingham, moderator
  • Gordon Goodwin, Director, Government Alliance on Race and Equity
  • Brandy H. M. Brooks, Director of Strategy & Development, One Square World
  • Adam Chapelaine, Arlington Town Manager
This research was conducted as part of: MetroCommon 2050, Greater Boston’s next regional plan, led by the Metropolitan Area Planning Council.

POSTPONED: The Air We Breathe – Vehicle Pollution and Racial Disparities in Greater Boston @ Zoom Conference
Jul 21 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Addressing racial disparities in exposure to pollution across our region is an important priority as we explore dynamic and equitable solutions to our region’s challenges.
Unfortunately, we will be postponing today’s webinar as one of our panelists had a last-minute conflict and is no longer available to attend. We feel that each panelist brings an important and unique perspective and would like to a reschedule the conversation for a time when they are all available to join in this conversation. Email sparodi@mapc.org if you would like to receive further information.

Greater Boston residents of color are more likely to live close to high-polluting roadways. What does that mean for their health?

Join us to learn more about MAPC’s recently-released research on racial disparities in vehicle pollution proximity and to discuss the public health implications of those disparities. Following a presentation on the research findings, a response panel will discuss how this impacts frontline communities and different strategies for addressing these inequities.
