CML Statement on Equity and Diversity
The Colorado Municipal League is committed to supporting our members' efforts to embrace and increase equity and diversity in their communities. We provide training, resources and tools that facilitate sharing and enhance learning to help local elected leaders build inclusive communities where people from all backgrounds and orientations thrive socially, economically, academically and physically.
The League also values diversity within its membership, elected leadership, and staff. We strive to support a CML Board and committees that reflect the communities we serve. Diversity of opinions, ideas, and solutions ensure that we are considering the needs of our members and Colorado residents in all our decisions.
