“The City of Madison has a deep commitment to diversity and inclusion across the board, and one of my top priorities is to make sure everyone’s voices are heard in our decision making process,” Rhodes-Conway said. “That is easier if our team is diverse and inclusive, which is why I am working to make sure that my office, the City workforce, and our City committees represent the full diversity of Madison.
