Equity Commission


The City of Modesto has adopted a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Program where all employees, volunteers, and the community we serve feel valued, respected, and heard. The Equity Commission seeks enthusiastic members to help drive the initiatives of the DEI Program that will foster, cultivate and preserve a culture of diversity, equity and inclusivity both internally within the City of Modesto workforce, as well as within the services we provide to the community.


The Equity Commission's primary responsibility is to advise and assist the City Manager, the City Council, and staff in matters that relate to equity and inclusion, equal opportunity and disability related issues within the City workforce and services provided to the community. The duties of the Human Relations Commission are carried out by the Equity Commission.
