Equity and Inclusion

Renton is one of the most diverse cities in our region and the 17th most diverse city in the country.

As included in the city's 2023-2028 Business Plan, the city aims to build an inclusive, informed and hate-free city with equitable outcomes for all in support of social, economic, and racial justice by:

  • Eliminating racial, economic and social barriers in internal practices, city programs, services, and policies such as hiring and contracting
  • Improving access to city services, programs and employment, provide opportunities and eradicate disparities for residents, workers and businesses

  • Promoting understanding and appreciation of our diversity through celebrations, educational forums and festivals

  • Seeking opportunities for ongoing two-way dialogue with ALL communities, engage those historically marginalized, and ensure that we lift every voice, listen and take action on what we learn

  • Building capacity within the city to implement inclusion and equity by providing the knowledge, skills, awareness, and tools to integrate anti-racist approaches into daily work
