The City of Hillsboro is Focused on Equity
By the Hillsboro City Council
See how the City Council is prioritizing equity in Hillsboro.
This year, we declared that one of the City’s guiding principles is to "instill diversity, equity, and inclusion as essential parts of policy-making and the delivery of City services."
We also made it a City priority to "support diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in City policy-making and in the delivery of services by adopting an equity statement, continuing DEI training, and utilizing an equity lens."
Draft Equity Statement: Community input
Community members offered their input and perspective on a draft Equity Statement at two listening sessions in August. We met this month to recap the significant and helpful feedback the City received from attendees.
Finalizing a statement that documents the City’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion is central to realizing the City of Hillsboro’s mission and core values. As a Council, we plan to consider the formal adoption of a finalized Equity Statement this year.
Moving equity forward
The City’s ongoing focus on equity now has an online home at Hillsboro-Oregon.gov/Equity. Here, you will find updates on the Equity Statement’s progress, as well as the future results produced by our City’s equity work. This webpage also highlights City programs and events that are moving equity forward.
We look forward to sharing more outcomes that result from the City’s commitment to equity.
