Our Role

The Office of Equity and Inclusion serves as a resource and consultant to all city departments and offices, and supports their work to review policies, programs and initiatives with a racial equity lens. Achieving racial equity and inclusion requires everyone to opt in. It requires a cultural shift, commitment of time and resources, and courage. As a result, it’s necessary for everyone to own and do the work. OEI is committed to ensuring that city departments and offices can work more effectively to advance racial equity and inclusion and make it a daily practice.
