About the Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging Committee
The Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging Committee was established by the Board of Selectmen August 23, 2022 following the work of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Task Force.
This committee is comprised of an intentionally diverse group of seven members appointed by the Board, serving staggered three year terms. One member of the committee is a high school-aged Shrewsbury resident junior or senior student serving a one year term.
The DEIB Committee will organize and facilitate a variety of community events, recommend strategies to improve access to local resources, programs, and opportunities, and foster civic engagement with the goal of increasing diverse participation in Town Boards, Committees, and Town Meeting.
