diversityThe City of Arlington recognizes that drawing on the diversity of a high performing workforce is key to creating and maintaining a safe and thriving community for a diverse population. A diverse workforce can yield innovative solutions, increase productivity, and thus enhance our overall effectiveness. We strive for an inclusive culture that is defined by our organizational philosophy of:

    • being responsive and respectful to our customers and co-workers;
    • innovation to explore options and create unique solutions;
    • commitment to excellence; and
    • relating to our customers and each other with integrity.

Each day we work to bring these values to life by valuing the whole range of human differences, including age, ethnicity, education, sexual orientation, work style, race, gender and more. The City of Arlington aims to hire and retain the best talent by offering a work environment where every individual is respected, supported, and valued on the basis of personal achievement. By respecting and including different viewpoints, we are better able to serve our customers, employees, business partners and communities.
