The Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Division serves as a critical link between the community and the City while enhancing efforts to promote the quality of life for all citizens.

This division is responsible for ongoing public education and enforcement of the City’s Human Rights Ordinance and Equal Opportunity in Purchasing Ordinance to ensure that contracting entities doing business with the City practice non-discriminatory hiring processes.

This division works to help those who feel they have been discriminated against by investigating complaints and working with both parties to resolve issues. The division is assisted in this role by the City’s Human Relations Commission
