Equity & Diversity Committee

On February 23, 2021, the Selectboard formed the task force with the following remit:

“To recommend to the Selectboard actions to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion in all activities of town government and assist in mobilizing community and external resources for the same.”

July 21, 2022: Shelburne's Equity and Diversity Committee would like to publicly express our gratitude and thanks to the Vermont COVID-19 Response Fund of the Vermont Community Foundation for awarding the Equity and Diversity Committee a $10,000 grant to be used for the work of the committee.

In July the Town of Shelburne will begin work with Tabitha Moore of Intentional Evolution.  Our theme will be "learning together", as we come together to understand what equity, diversity, and inclusion will mean for Shelburne, and how to meet our town government's commitment to ensuring and sustaining equity, anti-racism, anti-bias, and belonging for all people in our community.

Meetings are held on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of each month. Check the agenda for the meeting zoom link.


Agendas are available prior to the meetings.
