Mt. Lebanon Commission is looking for individuals to serve on an ad hoc committee of the volunteer Community Relations Board, in the hopes of taking positive steps forward on diversity, equity and inclusion issues in the municipality.
The deadline for application is Oct. 26. To apply, visit mtlebanon.org/DEICommittee. For assistance, call 412-343-3400 between 8:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. weekdays.
The commission wants the ad hoc committee and its working groups to reflect as many viewpoints as possible and therefore welcomes diverse applicants.
The committee will consist of four groups: Community Awareness/Community Building Working Group; Diversity in Boards and Hiring Working Group; Police Engagement Working Group; and Mt. Lebanon DEI Recognition, Event Planning and Incident Response Working Group.
The most important part of working within the groups is the ability to be respectful of differing opinions while working toward solutions.
The opinions of the participants will help inform the commission as it sets municipal policy.
The initial commitment for this committee is 12 months at about five hours per month.
