[ARCHIVED] City Manager Appointed to Statewide Equity & Inclusion Council

EI Council announcement

The City of Tybee Island is pleased to announce that City Manager Shawn Gillen has been selected by the Georgia Municipal Association (GMA) to serve on its inaugural Equity and Inclusion Advisory Council for 2022-2023. 

“I am honored to have been asked to participate, and I am happy that Tybee Island is being recognized for its efforts toward equity and inclusion,” Gillen said. “Due to the efforts of our mayor, city council, citizens and staff, we have become a leader among Georgia cities.”

Earlier this year, GMA recognized Tybee Island with a Visionary City Award for the city’s Resolution Promoting Justice and Equality. The Mayor and City Council collaborated with local residents in 2020 to create the resolution. It designates Juneteenth as a city holiday, establishes diversity, equity and inclusion training for all city employees, calls for regular monitoring of arrest and sentencing data, and commits to memorializing Tybee Island’s racial history.
