Why Diversity Matters to Us
We believe that a diverse workforce provides advantages both internally, in terms of the human resources potential offered by a variety of diverse perspectives, and externally, in increasing the County's ability to respond to an equally diverse community. In order to treat people fairly and provide equal opportunity, it is not enough to treat all people the same. The organization must instead respect all people and seek to accommodate and learn from the different perspectives and values they contribute.
