Adams’ County Diversity and Inclusion Division

Diversity:

The condition of having or being composed of differing elements, values, experiences, knowledge, and strengths, acknowledging each individual, and recognizing their individuality.

AND

Inclusivity:

The purposeful intent to embrace all people, including those who might be otherwise excluded or marginalized by race, gender identity, sexual orientation, handicap, disability, etc. The goal of inclusivity is to create a work environment and services that are equitable and understanding.

This diverse and inclusivity effort is comprised of three steps.

  • The aim is to provide cultural humility training to all county employees, so they can have a better understanding of historic trauma.
  • There will be interviews among county employees, to gain an understanding of current employer cultural practices.
  • There will be a county wide dissemination of a cultural assessment, to create dialogue about diversity and inclusion.

Larimer County is working on an initiative to be more inclusive of those with disabilities, such as creating internships and other employer opportunities.
