Mayor's Office of Equity & Inclusion

Our Mission & Equity in Salt Lake City

The Salt Lake City Mayor’s Office of Equity & Inclusion engages with City staff, elected officials, and the public to provide education, policy recommendations, and technical assistance related to equity, inclusion, and access. Our office provides toolkits, best practices, and support to encourage use of an equity lens for fair and just distribution of resources, access to services, and opportunities.
