Welcome to the Office of equity
The City of San Antonio’s Office of Equity was launched in 2015 to foster an inclusive culture across the City organization, ensure City processes have equitable outcomes, and be a safe place for community members to report discrimination.
Four annual goals currently drive the Office of Equity’s work:
- establish a shared understanding across the City organization of the meaning and significance of diversity, equity, and inclusion;
- promote equity in City processes;
- strengthen community awareness and involvement in the office;
- and improve services for community members submitting discrimination complaints.
As part of the City's commitment to equity and inclusion, the Office of Equity works closely with Juany Torres, the LGBT Liaison in the Office of the Mayor. In close collaboration with community, Torres is responsible for identifying, elevating, and addressing LGBT-related concerns.
