The Clarksville Diversity Symposium & Cultural Luncheon "A Seat at the Table," is being hosted by the Clarksville Human Relations Commission (HRC), a City of Clarksville organization established by ordinance in 2012. As a part of the City of Clarksville's cultural awareness and outreach efforts, the HRC is inviting a diverse group of leaders and community members for positive and meaningful dialogue on the current challenges, and opportunities of Clarksvillians from diverse backgrounds. There will be visiting diversity leaders from the Nashville and Chattanooga area, along with local panelists, guest speakers and special presentations made to culminate the next steps towards building a stronger coalition of citizens for the continued prosperity of Clarksville. You do not want to miss your Seat at the Table, being a part of this history-making day which celebrates our community, its people and the resources diversity brings.This event will be vibrant, interactive, and you will meet and talk with people from different walks of life while enjoying various cultural cuisines prepared right here in Clarksville.
This is a non-partisan event open to the public on a first come, first served basis until seats are filled. No cost to attend.
The mission of the HRC is to foster mutual understanding and respect for the diversity that exists among all persons in our community. We are a group of dedicated, city appointed volunteers committed to improving inter-group, and interracial relations. In collaboration with the City of Clarksville, we cultivate ongoing initiatives and programming in four areas adopted by the HRC to include, but not limited to:
Cultural Awareness & Outreach Initiatives
City Employment Practices and Department Climate Training
