Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility

Welcome! We're a group of volunteer advisors, and our purpose is to foster an Edmonds that accepts, celebrates, and appreciates each of us.

  • Serve as a resource for City government + the community by providing information, education, and communication that facilitates a better understanding and celebrates our differences.
  • Provide recommendations to the Mayor and City Council that would identify opportunities to address diversity issues, promote diversity programs, and/or provide guidance to create a more accessible, safe, and inclusive government and community.
  • Assist the City in supporting and challenging all areas of government and the community to eliminate and prevent all forms of discrimination.
