diversity, equity & inclusion initiatives

The City of Los Angeles is proud of its commitment to inclusion and diversity among our employees. Diversity in our workforce gives the City access to a rich range of talent, representing different experiences, perspectives, and styles. These differences foster a collaborative and innovative work environment that makes us a stronger and better organization on every level.

By maintaining a work environment built on respect, trust, collaboration, and cooperation, we are better able to provide superior service to the City’s diverse communities. In order to grow, evolve, and improve, we must continue to cultivate a culture that appreciates, welcomes, and embraces a diverse workforce.
