How does the Prince George’s County Planning Department define diversity?

April 10, 2024

Diversity within the Planning Department refers to those differences between individuals employed in our organization, each of whom contributes to a rich and varied work environment. These differences include (but are not limited to) race, gender, ethnicity, age, personality, sexual orientation, physical abilities, cognitive style, religious and political beliefs, economic status, and education. The concept of diversity encompasses acceptance and respect for individual differences and the exploration of these differences in a positive and nurturing environment. It is about moving beyond mere tolerance of differences to understanding, embracing, and celebrating the varied dimensions of each individual and recognizing their value to our workplace.
