2013 GRADUATES OF THE DIVERSITY COORDINATOR TRAINING INSTITUTE (DCTI)

Diversity as a concept focuses on human qualities that are different from our own and those of groups to which we belong; but that are manifested in other individuals and groups. Diversity encompasses both visible and invisible attributes that define an individual's personal diversity hence, when we recognize, value and embrace diversity, we are recognizing, valuing and embracing the uniqueness of each individual.


Mission

The mission of the Diversity Programs is to contribute to the goals of Alameda County, help drive business results and encourage employee engagement by working collaboratively with each County agency and department: to effectively manage and value the diversity of its employees; to promote a harassment-free workplace; to ensure inclusion of all people; to minimize the human and financial costs associated with protracted and adversarial processes; and, to help provide human-centered services.
