The Town of Stouffville is committed to creating safe and respectful environments where employees, residents, and community members feel represented and comfortable being their true selves. Our strength comes from the diversity of our community and through ongoing learning and dialogue, the Town seeks to ensure inclusivity for all individuals. It is our commitment to remove barriers and provide equitable experiences to ensure full participation in our community and uphold the vision of a town that is unified and welcoming of all.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Strategy and Action Plan
The Town has developed a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DE&I) Framework that articulates the Town’s vision, values, and commitments to DE&I. The framework will help guide the Town in its continued effort to build a diverse and inclusive workplace and provide inclusive services and programs to residents. The framework will drive strategic and operational changes at the organizational level through the development of DE&I focused initiatives that align with the Town’s commitment to DE&I.
Our Diversity and Inclusion Working Group provides guidance to Council to ensure that Town policies, programs and services reflect the diverse needs of our community. They also contribute to the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Strategy and Action Plan.
