Diverse and Inclusive Government
New York City’s diversity is one of its greatest assets, and a municipal workforce that reflects and embraces this diversity can more effectively and equitably serve New Yorkers. Diversity management combined with an inclusive work environment has proven to enhance organizational performance and innovation, bring different perspectives and solutions to the table, and strengthen government’s ability to serve and protect people from different backgrounds. OneNYC established a path for improving the ways we recruit, retain, and develop a diverse workforce that has shown results at every level of government. OneNYC also focused resources on increasing the capacity and participation of minority and women-owned business enterprises (M/WBEs), and implemented new programs to leverage the City’s purchasing power to support pay equity and M/WBEs.
