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.
