Advise County Departments

Did you know that ...

...more than one in four Monterey County residents do not speak English?


...our workforce is changing faster than ever, with high levels of retirements and new hires?

...county policy and federal law require that we provide meaningful access to all County

services for all community members?

...diverse workplaces are more creative, solve problems better, and are more adaptable, but can also create dissent when left unmanaged?

...promoting and managing an equitable and diverse workplace requires empathy, problem solving,

some technical knowledge, and communication skills?
