OFFICE OF EQUITY ANNUAL REPORT 2019
The Office of Equity leverages normalizing equity terms, concepts, and tools by training staff on the application and utilization of an equity lens in their work. Applying an equity lens assists in removing barriers, undoing institutional and structural racism, and evaluating benefits and burdens in underserved communities. The Office of Equity recognizes that it will take a transformational shift within government to truly address disparities experienced by communities of color, low-income communities, and all marginalized communities. We focus our efforts on elevating equity concepts and deepening the understanding of what it takes to advance equity within every City Department. Our office provides training, technical assistance and equity specific tools to all City Departments and staff, because we believe that advancing equity is everyone’s job.
The Equity Annual Report provides an overview of our initiatives’ progress and development during 2019.
