AnnouncementStrategic Growth Council Unanimously Adopts Racial Equity Action Plan


As the first cabinet-level multi-agency body to adopt a Racial Equity Action Plan in the nation, this action is significant. Endorsement by the Council is multisectoral and at the highest levels of California state government. The SGC comprises six Secretaries representing transportation, health, agriculture, housing, natural resources, and environment, as well as three appointed public members, and is chaired by the Director of the Governor’s Office of Planning and Research (SGC members). This is also the first Racial Equity Action Plan from the Capitol Cohort to be publicly presented.

“The Strategic Growth Council is committed to achieving racial equity in its operations, investments, and policy initiatives and to achieve its vision for Racial Equity: All people in California live in healthy, thriving, and resilient communities regardless of race. This Racial Equity Action Plan outlines concrete actions that SGC leadership and staff will take to achieve racial equity in our organization, operation, programs, and policies. Moving forward, SGC will monitor progress of the Racial Equity Action Plan, report to the Council on results on an annual basis, and make adjustments as needed, as well as integrate new strategies, programs and policies as appropriate.”
