The Massachusetts Municipal Councillors’ Association held a webinar on Nov. 19 focusing on the positive impacts of living in a diverse community.
The panelists for “What Does Diversity and an Immigrant Population Mean to Your Community?” included Lawrence City Councillor Jeovanny Rodriguez, Boston City Councillor Ed Flynn, and Marcony Almeida-Barros, director of the Office of Community Engagement in the Attorney General’s Office.
Speakers discussed hiring for diversity, what it means to live and work in a “minority majority” city, and resources available to immigrants and the larger community through the Office of Community Engagement.
