Shaping Fort Collins’ Operations and Long-Term Vision
On Wednesday, June 8th, Rotary meets in person at the Lincoln Center.  Following an introduction by Bill Timpson, we will welcome  Claudia Menéndez, who serves as Fort Collins’ inaugural chief diversity, equity and inclusion officer following her appointment in July, 2021.  In her role, our guest is tasked with creating and building the city’s chief diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) office, with the goal of increasing Fort Collins’ ability to support DEI work, both within the ranks of the City staff,  and externally.
