Office of Equity & Inclusion- our why#
The Office of Equity & Inclusion was created in August of 2021. We are carefully weaving together the community context to best understand the equity landscape and plan for the work ahead of us. This is highly collaborative, multi-faceted work that depends on strong partnerships and open, ongoing community dialogue. We invite all voices.
The Office of Equity & Inclusion proudly operates with a people-centered, community-focused approach. Our goal is to listen and integrate diverse community voices, opinions, and beliefs on equity issues affecting our community. It is our determination to dismantle racial disparities and increase equitable access so that persons of all identities, including race, ethnicity, religion, age, class, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, and physical and mental abilities can fully participate in City services and experience equitable community outcomes.
The Office of Equity & Inclusion will look within all aspects of City government to closely examine policies, practices, budget allocations, and programs that may perpetuate institutional racism and systemic inequities for various historically excluded groups.

Keep in mind that equity work is journey with no definite finish line. Equity work is about people and listening to the community and facilitating for people from the most underserved groups to get the services they say they need.
