Office of Equity
In the summer of 2020, the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors created the Sonoma County Office of Equity and took a meaningful step to recognize and celebrate our powerful role in unseating racial inequity in our communities.
In January 2021, the Board approved a 5 year strategic plan, which includes a Racial Equity and Social Justice pillar. The pillar is made up of specific goals and objectives that will lead to normalizing, organizing, and operationalizing a new way of seeing our challenges, conducting analysis, and implementing new policies to ensure a workforce reflective of the community we serve and to achieve racial equity in County service provision.

On Tuesday, the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors reviewed and approved the mission, vision and values of the county Office of Equity which was created in August 2020 to address social and racial equity issues and to ensure county policies and programs result in greater positive outcomes for communities of color.
