Equity and Inclusion Cabinet
The mission of the Equity and Inclusion Cabinet is to transform City policies, programs, and practices so that every resident has full access to what the City of Boston has to offer. With the goals of achieving racial justice and improving social determinants of health through systemic change for historically excluded communities, the Equity and Inclusion Cabinet:
- directly improves outcomes with and for residents
- counsels all City departments to better address issues of equity, inclusion, and access, and
- creates the conditions for residents to build their collective power.
