Mission: To clearly define and communicate internally what the City of Columbus means by diversity and inclusion. Also, to support Mayor Ginther and the Cabinet Leadership Team in the reinforcement of Mayor Ginther’s vision and commitment to diversity and inclusion throughout City Departments and Commissions, with the ultimate goal of developing a benchmark standard of diversity and inclusion leadership for other U.S. cities to follow.
An important part of demonstrating commitment to diversity
and inclusion is having the Mayor and all members of his cabinet being involved
in a diversity committee process that will hold each director accountable for
the progress in area’s in diversity management with the city.

City of Columbus will launch the 1st ever citywide diversity committee
process. The City of Columbus diversity committee will be comprised of
representatives from all city departments and commissions which will meet at

in the areas of workforce diversity, supplier diversity, and other areas to be
determined by the committee. Stay tuned for more information and details about the
diversity committee process.
