Equal Opportunity and Diversity

Equal Opportunity

The District is committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive workforce, recognizing the full range of human differences and similarities. Through our unwavering efforts to leverage the potential of our diversity, we continually strive to build and foster an environment that respects each individual. We encourage and promote innovation, and provide opportunities for all employees to interact, communicate, and realize the full potential of their talents.

Accordingly, the District will afford equal employment opportunity to all qualified employees and applicants as to all terms and conditions of employment, including compensation, hiring, training, promotion, transfer, discipline, and termination. The District does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, gender, sex, national origin, citizenship, ancestry, age, physical disability, mental disability, medical condition, family care or medical leave status, veteran status, marital status, sexual orientation, sexual identity or any other characteristic protected by state and federal law.

Diversity

The District is responsible to deliver clean and safe drinking water and to collect and transmit sanitary sewers for our customers. To best serve the community, it is important for our workforce to mirror the diversity of the community. Therefore, we have made it a priority to build a diverse and inclusive organization; to value individual diversity; and to promote and practice inclusion.

We are committed to the quality of work life. Our employees are our most valuable resource. We promote inclusion, first because each individual deserves respect, but also because it strengthens the organization to better serve the community. In an inclusive environment, individual differences are valued and different perspectives are leveraged. This helps the District to make better decisions, be sensitive to diverse community, communicate effectively and improve our service to our community.
