angeliqueAngelique Cooper-Liberty was recognized at a celebration held Thursday, Aug. 22, to recognize the work of a committee that helped department leaders identify and address disparities in access and outcomes for cultural and ethnic communities served by DHS.

Community members and department employees who served on the Disparities Reduction Advisory Committee members were honored at the event held at DHS' 444 Lafayette location.

The 30-member committee concluded its work earlier this summer, providing the DHS Senior Management Team with recommended measures highlighting key programs to identify and track the gaps in results experienced by populations in Minnesota.

The Disparities Reduction Advisory Committee was formed in 2007. The advisory committee is succeeded by the newly created Cultural and Ethnic Communities Leadership Council, established by the 2013 Legislature with support from DHS.

The council will begin work Nov. 15.
