Diversity

  • County Housing is dedicated to fostering an inclusive and supportive environment that upholds the principles of affirmative action and equal employment opportunity. This commitment extends to all qualified individuals, irrespective of their race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, genetic information, national origin, age, disability, or status as a disabled veteran.
  • This executive summary outlines the Affirmative Action Plan (AAP) developed by County Housing, highlighting our deliberate actions to establish an organization that prioritizes diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging.
  • The primary objective of the AAP is to implement a comprehensive program aligned with County Housing’s policies, procedures, and core values. It includes a set of specific initiatives designed to eliminate bias in the hiring process and create a fair and equitable workplace that promotes equal opportunities for individuals from protected classes. Additionally, the plan aims to identify and address any underutilization of minorities and women within the organization.
  • The successful execution of the AAP relies on the unwavering support of every member of management and all employees. Each individual is expected to demonstrate leadership and serve as a role model to cultivate a work environment that upholds the principles of affirmative action and equal employment opportunity.
  • To ensure widespread access and transparency, the AAP is shared with all employees electronically and easily accessible via County Housing’s website. In addition, contractors, vendors, and members of the public can access the AAP on the website, and physical copies are made available upon request. Alternative formats will also be made available, such as including the equal opportunity employer statement printed on County Housing letterhead, in bid requests, and on all job postings.
  • By implementing the AAP, County Housing reaffirms its commitment to building an organization that embraces diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging. We believe that by addressing historical discrimination and promoting equal opportunities, we can create a more just and equitable society.

County Housing is fully committed to implementing policies, programs, and procedures outlined in this plan to ensure that employment practices are free from discrimination. Our affirmative action program encompasses various key objectives, including:
