The Klyde Warren Park DEI Task Force comprises a group of Dallas-area leaders who (1) care about the development of strategies, best practices and policies regarding diversity, equity, and inclusion, (2) continually review credible sources to ensure that Klyde Warren Park is in step with current DEI initiatives and (3) attend quarterly meetings to discuss policies, programs, and community engagement.
This year’s membership is creating the roadmap for the future, with a focus on representational holiday events and free public programming. Guest speakers will be featured, providing concrete examples of effective work in other parts of the country.
As members of the national High Line Network and its Equitable Impacts Framework pilot program, Klyde Warren Park is connected to a vast system of outdoor spaces and receives valuable guidance to share. Members are encouraged to promote this information within their own companies, as well as to establish connections to further their own professional work.
