On his weekly radio visit Worcester Mayor Joe Petty addressed the controversy that has followed the announcement of the city’s Chief Diversity Officer leaving after a short tenure.
Fallout from Stephanie Wiliams centers on if the city is doing enough when it comes to diversity and inclusion and a lack of communication. Those who spoke at the City Council meeting said that work needs to be done before a new Diversity Officer is hired.
The Mayor spoke about what is being done and that the city recognizes it is an issue.
