Commission on Institutional Change completes investigation of contested hiring process for UUA Southern Region Lead position in 2017, offers reflections and recommendations for ‘fundamental and deep’ changes.
Today the UUA Commission on Institutional Change issued its report on the hiring process for a new leader of the UUA Southern Region staff, a process that resulted last spring in a UUA-wide controversy over discriminatory treatment of people of color.
Read the commission’s 17-page report, which includes 12 pages of findings, ten recommendations for action, a chronology of events, and a list of the 15 people the commission interviewed. The commission also recorded a 30-minute video about its report; Marcus Fogliano asks the commissioners questions about their report beginning at 13:30.
The UUA Board of Trustees will meet Monday evening, April 9, to discuss the report. UU World will be following up with our own reporting, which will appear first on uuworld.org and then in the Fall 2018 issue of the magazine.
