As a member of ICMA's membership team, Laura cultivates relationships with local government professionals and supports Executive Board initiatives and priorities focused on equity, inclusion, and the advancement of the local government profession. Through a commitment to equity and inclusion, the Career and Equity Advancement team works to ensure that their members and the overall profession reflect the diversity of the people they serve and mitigates the effects of bias by continuously evaluating, developing, and promoting programs and initiatives in the areas of service delivery, hiring practices, leadership development, community engagement, and workplace culture.
In addition to managing programs, Laura’s role supports ICMA's mission by serving as the liaison with the League of Women in Government, Engaging Local Government Leaders, Government Alliance on Race and Equity, CivicPRIDE, and the Assistants and Deputies Advisory Board. Laura provides support for the Veterans Local Government Management Fellowship program and assists with diversity, equity, and inclusion-focused conference sessions and event planning.
