Diversity includes respect of the dignity of each individual as a person not withstanding differences in personality, age, gender, race, ethnicity, physical and mental ability, sexual orientation, physical appearance, family status, religious and political beliefs, socio-economic status, and other personal identity markers.

The Office of Diversity works to foster an awareness, understanding and respect for the differences that make us each unique human beings. It strives to identify, understand and satisfy the needs of the City's diverse workforce and community.


Services offered by the Office of Diversity support the City's diversity strategies and influence both the internal work environment and the community.
