Minority Elected and Appointed Officials
The Program targets MEAOs in local, state, and federal governments, including county commissioners, city councilpersons, school board members, senior government managers, transportation agency personnel, sheriff’s departments, and agents from government-sponsored enterprises. It is a structured program designed to help Minority officials utilize the governmental systems and personnel to be held more responsive to their minority communities using a succinct sustainable model.
Through the CeGOLD program, MEAOs will expand their knowledge and develop new skills based upon performance excellence principles. These principles magnify and improve the potential contributions of governmental organizations and policies and cause a transformation so that what works for the minority community will work for everybody.
The outcome objective is to equip MEAOs to change the narrative and to produce the desired outcomes between their community and government resources that enhance their constituents’ quality of life.
