Commission Purpose
The Commission seeks to support and advance the City of Marshall's mission, vision and values by providing guidance for the development and implementation of proactive diversity, access, inclusion, research, and retention initiatives. The Commission serves to promote an environment where people come first, and are not only treated with dignity and respect, but also encouraged and supported to achieve their full potential. The Commission will collaborate with community partners on matters associated with equity and inclusion to foster relationships and advocate for underrepresented populations.
