Those with links to St Albans are invited to help shape the district council's new equality, diversity and inclusion strategy.
The strategy, which influences many of the council’s major policies and decisions, is being replaced with a new one for 2021.
The council is asking people to have their say by responding to a short online survey which will only take around 10 minutes to complete.
The survey asks people what they would do to improve equality, diversity and inclusion in the district, and gives a space to contribute new ideas that would propel the new strategy.
The strategy sets out the council’s vision and plans for the next three years to make the district an inclusive place where everyone can thrive.
