Diversity and Inclusion

Sunnyvale takes pride in the incredible diversity of people who form the rich fabric of our city. We embrace our community of many backgrounds and beliefs, and pride ourselves in our openness and acceptance for all.

Our City Values and Public Service statement expresses our commitment to ethical service delivery to meet the needs of all community members regardless of race, religion, ancestry, ethnicity, ability, gender, sexual orientation or gender identity. All City employees are responsible to serve every member of the public with courtesy, respect, professionalism and impartiality. We are a culturally diverse community where all are welcome, safe and acknowledged.
