Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion 

Washoe County is committed to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I) at all levels of the organization.  Building this commitment into our policies and practices enhances our organization for employees and enriches the experience of the citizens that we serve.  A diverse workforce requires an inclusive environment built on a foundation of tolerance and respect for individual differences, values, and perspectives as set forth in Washoe County’s Code of Conduct.  Through these core principles, it is the goal of Washoe County’s leadership to create a sense of belonging for all employees and citizens served.



In 2021, the DE&I Employee Resource Group (DE&I ERG) was established as a volunteer group to provide support and guidance to Washoe County’s DE&I initiatives and policies as they relate to the employee experience.
