Ferndale, MI – Affirmations’ Multicultural Advisory Committee announced this week that it is accepting new members. Launched in May 2008, Affirmations’ MAC has been meeting monthly to research best practices in multicultural service provision. The MAC is entering its third and final phase of work: compiling data and making recommendations for change. Applications for joining the MAC can be accessed at http://www.GoAffirmations.org.
The committee intends to review new applications Feb. 3. “We want people who have a passion for racial equity and who can take data, pull out compelling information and formulate a plan for change,” said MAC Coordinator Kathleen LaTosch.
This past summer, MAC efforts focused on having community members complete an online survey about their impressions of Affirmations. Small discussion groups, led by a Detroit-area consultant, were organized for January to help deepen the quality of information collected. This, combined with data collected across the Midwest, will provide the basis for recommendations that the group hopes to provide to the board of directors in 2011.
