Equity and Community Consortium
The The Equity and Community Consortium (ECC) is an information and resource sharing and coordination forum for agencies and jurisdictions that provide governmental and public services in the Eugene-Springfield metropolitan area. This work at the City of Eugene is coordinated through Human Resources and Human Rights and Neighborhood Involvement.
The main goals of the ECC are:
- To develop and share information about equity and service to our community and to create opportunities for the mutual benefit of the participating agencies;
- To allow each agency to make informed, independent action-oriented decisions relying on information and idea exchange and mutual support that is created by the ECC;
- To share experience, progress and challenges associated with each agency’s goals to improve and enhance internal working environments and creating more equitable workplaces;
- To improve equity with respect to each agency’s goods, services, bids and employment;
- To develop a strategic framework that both recognizes the unique challenges of each agency, but also allows shared vision, community-wide action, and professional development opportunities whenever possible.
Communities of Color & Allies Network
The Communities of Color and Allies Network (CCAN) was started by local community folks of color interested in bringing together people in a relaxed social atmosphere to support one another.
First Fridays CCAN
Each month, a different partner agency of the Equity and Community Consortium (ECC) sponsors a networking event for CCAN. The goal of the First Fridays CCAN is to create a safe space that fosters friendships and networks for people of color, social justice allies, and equity workers in the local area.
ALL ARE WELCOME! Regardless of race, color, religion, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin, marital status, age, veteran status, or abilities.
