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.
