Equity and Inclusion Plan

The Johnson Creek Watershed Council’s (JCWC) mission is to promote restoration and stewardship of a healthy Johnson Creek watershed through sound science and community engagement. JCWC aims to make our programs and community engagement efforts serve all residents of the watershed.

Equity Statement

Johnson Creek Watershed Council welcomes ALL people who live, work, and play around Johnson Creek. We acknowledge there is a legacy of systemic inequalities within our watershed. The Council is devoted to doing our part to heal the legacy of systemic racism and inequality  by enriching the lives of all people who touch Johnson Creek Watershed.

Equity Plan

The Equity and Inclusion Plan is organized around three main categories: governance, facilities, and building community. These categories reflect the structure of the 2017-2022 JCWC Strategic Plan. These two guiding documents were created with the same structure at the same time to allow for the two to work together. The Equity and Inclusion Plan is active for 5 years, from 2017-2022.
