Developing policies that place equity at the forefront takes time, resources, a commitment to learn, and a dedication to be inclusive.

In 2019, the Hillsboro City Council made it a citywide 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.

Read the full 2019 City Council priorities.

The City Council also declared it a guiding principle to:

Instill diversity, equity, and inclusion as essential parts of policy-making and the delivery of City services.

We are working on an inclusion and engagement strategy to benefit everyone. Read the "Building Equity and Inclusion in Our City" news article to learn more.

Equity Statement and Public Engagement

The City’s Equity Team has drafted an Equity Statement to reflect why our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion is central to realizing our mission and core values. The City will engage both the public and employees to share their ideas and perspectives.
