Appointment if Equalities, Diversity, and Inclusivity Champion
I am pleased to announce that I have been appointed as the Equalities, Diversity, and Inclusivity Champion for the East Riding of Yorkshire Council.
The request came from the newly elected Leader of ERYC, Cllr Owen and I jumped at the opportunity. My new role was confirmed at the AGM of ERYC yesterday.
I believe this is the first time that the Council have had such a champion.
I will endeavour to ensure that the Council is not only an equal, diverse and inclusive employer but also ensure that the services the Council provides give equal opportunities, catering for a diverse range of residents and are inclusive in what they offer.
Over the next weeks and months, I will be working with Councillors, Officers and residents to shape this role.
Should any resident wish to speak to me please get in touch.
Cllr Jacob L Birch
Mid Holderness Ward
Equalities, Diversity, and Inclusivity Champion
East Riding of Yorkshire Council
