Racial Equity Group selected by City of Newton Massachusetts to conduct Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Audit within employment, procurement, services and programs and stakeholder engagement

“Mayors have come and gone and spoken to the goal of long-term systemic change to actualize diversity, equity, and inclusion within Newton’s city government and across our community,” said Mayor Ruthanne Fuller in a community update Friday. “I want to ensure the creation of a plan and take the actions to institutionalize equity and social justice, reinforce inclusion, affirm diverse identities and experiences, support victims of hate and bias, foster respect among all of us and celebrate difference.” The city hired Racial Equity Group in October 2022 .
