Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Commission

The purpose of the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Commission (DEI) is to enhance the City's support for a welcoming environment by encouraging cooperation, tolerance, and respect among those living, working, and visiting the City; to provide information, education, and communication that facilitates understanding and celebrates our differences; and to advise City government in ways that unite the community and ensure all are equally respected, valued, needed, and cherished.

What is DEI anyway? 

DEI stands for Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion. Visit our "What is DEI Anyway?" page to learn more about how we define each of those terms.
