This week Mayor Gary Christenson welcomed the City’s first ever Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Officer. Bybiose Larochelle received her Bachelor of Arts in Crime and Justice Studies/Psychology and a minor in Black Studies from UMass Dartmouth as well as a graduate degree in Crime and Justice Studies. She is passionate about social services and believes in the Agency of Human Services’ key practices of customer service, holistic service, strength-based relationships and results orientation. In all her previous roles she has promoted Diversity, Equity and Inclusion and will continue to promote these qualities in her new role.
“We are thrilled to welcome Bybiose to our office,” said Mayor Christenson. “She will play a critical role in increasing the focus on diversity, equity and inclusion both inside our organization and across the city.”
