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.
