Equity & Inclusion Cabinet Mission:

The mission of the Equity and Inclusion Cabinet is to ensure that every resident has fair access to City resources and opportunities. We achieve this by embedding equity and inclusion into our current City practices, building our collective capacity on racial and social justice issues, and fostering a more welcoming and accessible city. The departments in the Equity and Inclusion Cabinet take an anti-poverty approach to their work, focusing on the following areas: 

1. Improving outcomes for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, people of color) communities, in particular immigrants, women, and LGBTQ+

2. Increasing access for people with disabilities and those who speak a language other than English.
