The City of Bloomington's Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

Diversity is at the core of Bloomington's strength and the heart of our values. Diversity not only reflects the world in which we live but also encourages creativity and excellence. Diversity goes beyond legal requirements such as Affirmative Action and Equal Employment Opportunity. The City of Bloomington is fully committed to racial and ethnic equality; however, we recognize that there are infinite qualities that make people unique. Among these characteristics are race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, age, and socioeconomic background. We not only respect, but also value differences in all their forms of expression as necessary for a view of each other that is balanced and healthy. Bloomington's commitment to diversity means a commitment to the inclusion, welcome, and support of individuals from all groups, encompassing the various characteristics of persons in our community. Our differences can, and do, make us a stronger community.
