Diversity in Action

Washoe County is committed to inclusion of diversity at all levels of the organization. Diversity adds significant value to our organization and enriches the community we serve.  Through diversity we are able to deliver quality service to ALL customers, which is the fundamental reason Washoe County exists.  A diverse workforce requires an inclusive environment built on a foundation of tolerance and respect for individual differences, values, and perspectives.

Washoe County recognizes that diversity is an important part of a healthy workforce and that it allows us to better relate to our constituents.  Departments have been implementing inclusion programs and practices into their departmental culture for at least a decade, thus the title Diversity In Action.  We would like to make those efforts known, while presenting specific strategies to expand our efforts to enhance inclusiveness and diversity at Washoe County.
