Peoria’s Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion

City Manager's Message

In Peoria, we believe that the diversity of our City’s government organization reflects the fundamental strength of our community and region. Our mission is best fulfilled when we embrace diversity as a value and a practice. I believe that maintaining diversity in our workforce requires an enduring commitment to inclusion that must find full expression in our organizational culture, values, norms, and behaviors.

Throughout our work, we support diversity in all of its forms, encompassing but not limited to age, disability status, economic circumstance, ethnicity, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation and gender identity. Leading by example through our organizations’ leadership and all that we do, diversity is a core and abiding strength of our City.

Since its inception in 2007, the City’s Diversity Team, comprised of staff and leadership, and has worked hard to highlight the importance of diversity to employees and residents throughout our city. This group of dedicated employees meets on a regular basis to plan “programs, services and activities that advocate and strengthen the sensitivity of our organization” for all members of our work force, customers, and community. I am thankful for the work they have accomplished and their dedication to our goals.

I am proud and honored to have been instrumental in the development of the City’s Diversity Team. However, my greatest reward is that I get to lead an organization which demonstrates daily a commitment to hiring the best people, no matter their demographic background; working for an organization which truly respects each other’s opinions and ideas, and; being a part of a City team striving to provide residents an unmatched quality of life and excellent customer service.

Being a diverse and inclusive organization demands constant diligence. Success does not come easily, and it can be lost quickly. Through the thoughtful guidance of elected officials and an engaged staff with diverse backgrounds of ideas and cultures, Peoria will continue to grow as an inclusive organization and community.

Carl Swenson, ICMA-CM
City Manager
