Our community is made up of a diverse population. At San Joaquin County, we strive to become a place where our employees are representative of the community in which we serve. Through our SJC Engage program, we want to celebrate all of the differences that make us a great and diverse community.
Diversity is everything and everything is diversity. Diversity is individuality. It is not a tagline or cliché. It is the soul of humanity and what makes us all stand out as individuals. It goes beyond race, religion, gender, identity and political affiliation. Diversity is human characteristics, perspectives and life experiences. It can include differing thought processes and varying approaches to a solution. It’s what makes us human.
Please help us in ensuring that we continue to take pride in and maintain respect for the gift we have been given in our unique population.
Workplace diversity encompasses a broad range of human qualities. These qualities include, but are not limited to, age, education level, ethnicity, gender, gender identity or expression, geographic origin, job classification, mental or physical disability, national origin, political belief, race, religious belief, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, and work experience.
In San Joaquin County, diversity in the workplace means empowering a workforce that is inclusive of these human qualities, which in practice recognizes and embraces the unique contributions of individuals, creating a work environment that maximizes the potential of all employees.
In San Joaquin County, we believe that every individual is important and adds to the overall quality of our organization. We view diversity in our workplace as business strength; essential to providing excellent support and services to the community we serve. We are committed to fostering an inclusive and welcoming environment, reflective of the diversity of our community. We are committed to an environment where every individual may grow personally and professionally, where everyone’s contributions are acknowledged, respected, and appreciated, and where we celebrate the differences that make us a strong organization.
By working together, we can attract, develop, recognize and retain highly skilled and talented individuals.
