Previously known as the Office of Multicultural Affairs, the Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion, was established by Mayor Tommy Battle and serves as the administration’s point of contact for the diverse cultures within the city boundaries.
The vision is to encourage understanding and goodwill, and to promote community engagement, multicultural education, leadership development and social justice education between and among Huntsville’s international citizens and those native-born to our community. Our mission is to foster an environment that reflects the equal treatment and participation of all segments of Huntsville’s diverse, culturally rich communities in civic, economic, educational and social development.
The Office of Diversity, Equity & Inclusion is charged with developing partnerships, programs and services with local City agencies to create a vibrant and inclusive community. Outreach includes maintaining partnerships with community, religious groups, neighborhoods, civic and homeowners associations.
