INdeavor Luncheon w/ Emma Sellers
March 16, 2022 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
INdeavor is a monthly luncheon, featuring a local leader, focused on topics that are relevant to your business interests and the inner workings of your local economy…so you can be INformed, INvolved and INvested in your community. A hot lunch is included!
Join us for lunch with Emma Sellers, the City of Concord’s Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Coordinator.
In this newly created role, Sellers will work with city leadership and community stakeholders to direct, coordinate, and implement programs and activities that establish DEI as a shared value across the organization and throughout the community. She also serves as the city liaison to the Concord United Committee. Concord City Council established the committee in February 2021 to examine racial inequities within city departments, programs, policies and procedures.
