Committee Plans Outreach to Members About Increasing Diversity

June 15, 2015

By Alyson Fauske, Diversity Committee

In effort to increase diversity within the current membership, the APWA-MN Diversity Committee will be contacting some current members to discuss the benefits of chapter membership with an emphasis on increasing diversity -- specifically members from larger agencies that may have a more diverse workforce and companies that have vacancies in their group memberships.  

The committee is also looking to partner with the Public Awareness Committee on the State Fair Exhibit.

Most recently, the committee connected with Hennepin Technical College (HTC) to discuss opportunities for APWA-MN to collaborate with HTC. Volunteers attended the Career Fair at the Eden Prairie campus, showcasing the new APWA-MN display. The event became a great opportunity to increase awareness of the public works profession among the career fair attendees that were not enrolled in the HTC Public Works program. We hope to expand this effort to Dakota County Technical College.
