Gender Diversity of the Pierce County Workforce
Why is this a priority?
Pierce County is a diverse community, and we strive to foster a workforce and workplace culture that reflects the community in which we serve and live. In 2019, Pierce County launched a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiative. Led by the Human Resources Department and County employees, the initiative will utilize input and resources from the community to promote a workplace culture that embraces, demonstrates, and celebrates the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion.
