ICMA-RC's Lynne Ford Signs the CEO Action for Diversity and Inclusion Pledge

ICMA-RC believes that talent from diverse backgrounds further enhance our ability to serve those who serve their communities. Throughout our history, we’ve been dedicated to creating an environment where all people can thrive across all aspects of our business. That’s why our CEO and President Lynne Ford proudly joined more than 1,500 C-Suite leaders across the country and pledged commitment to advancing diversity and inclusion in the workplace.

As part of the CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion Pledge, Ms. Ford has pledged to:

  • Continue to make the ICMA-RC workplace a trusting place to have complex, and sometimes difficult conversations about diversity and inclusion
  • Implement and expand unconscious bias education
  • Share best — and unsuccessful — practices
  • Create and share strategic diversity, equity, and inclusion plans with our board of directors

"While ICMA-RC has a long history of diversity and inclusion, there is much more we can do and our goal is to promote an environment that recognizes the value and diversity of every individual and foster respect throughout our entire organization," said Ms. Ford. "I could not be more pleased to be part of this initiative, and I look forward to collaborating with other CEOs to share best practices and identify actions we can take to improve diversity, equity, and inclusion among each of our organizations."
