We recognize that the people of our agency are one of our greatest assets, and we are committed to the recruitment, development and retention of a diverse and inclusive workforce that is reflective of our City's population. We recognize that when we talk about Diversity, we are talking about the inclusion of people who are different. When we value our differences, we build stronger teams driving the best performance. I expect all managers and supervisors to promote a work environment that values equity, inclusion of, and respect for all. I want our employees, present and future, to view our agency as a model employer.
