    Support Diversity Inclusion of Students on Boards and Commissions

    a.   From: Councilmember Maio

    Recommendation: Encourage diversity, reflective of Berkeley’s population, on its boards and commissions and assist in this effort by referring qualified candidates from under-represented categories to an applicant pool that Councilmembers can access; that Council review the categories commonly used in defining diversity and determine the appropriate diversity profile for Berkeley; and that the Clerk prepare a report on the diversity of our boards and commissions each year for Council information, enabling us to track the success of our efforts.

    Financial Implications: None

    Contact: Linda Maio, Councilmember District 1, 981-7110

    b.   From: Councilmember Maio

    Recommendation: Go on record as supporting student representation on boards and commissions and request that Mayor Bates discuss with the administrations of appropriate academic institutions (U.C., Vista, and any others deemed pertinent) the strengthening of programs that encourage participation in local government, perhaps for class credit, via appointments to Berkeley’s +/- 40 Boards and Commissions, thereby creating a central repository of applicants that can be accessed by Councilmembers when a vacancy occurs.

    Financial Implications: None

    Contact: Linda Maio, Councilmember District 1, 981-7110

    c.   From: Councilmember Worthington (Held over as amended from November 29, 2005)

    Recommendation: Adopt a Resolution to: 1) encourage City Councilmembers to actively seek to fill vacant positions with consideration of the needs and benefits of a more representative and diverse commission roster; and 2) implement semi-annual reviews of its progress to determine if additional steps should be taken to ensure that these goals are met.
