Diversity and Inclusion Commission

The scope of the City of Elk Grove Diversity and Inclusion Commission will focus around the three tenets of Education/Promotion, being Ambassadors, and providing Council feedback. Diversity is defined as the entire range of human differences that includes, but is not limited to race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, age, socioeconomic status, religious affiliation, and national origin. Inclusion puts the concept of diversity into action by creating an environment of involvement, respect, and connection.
