The Village of Waunakee has launched a survey in hopes of gauging residents’ perceptions of equity and inclusion. The survey is intended to help village government listen and learn about matters of equity and inclusion in the village and to help establish some baseline information from which to measure improvement over time.

The polling service, Polco, which is affiliated with the National Research Center, has a system allowing organizations to launch surveys of topics to their choosing as benchmark surveys, said Todd Schmidt, village administrator.
