OUR STATEMENT OF DIVERSITY, INCLUSION & EQUITY
City of Kirkwood, Missouri
Diversity is the variety of human differences.
Inclusion is valuing and respecting those differences.
Equity is the equality of opportunity that comes with true inclusion.
In Kirkwood we believe that through diversity we will excel; through inclusion we will draw each person into our circle of community; and focused on equity for all we will serve each person.
Our citizens are respected based on individual strengths regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, religion, age, sexual orientation, disability, life experience, geographic background, skills or talents, and other valued differences.
We strive to ensure that all who are present in this building feel safe, welcome, and respected. We desire that our embrace of diversity, inclusion and equity be extended throughout our community and beyond.
