Diversity Office

The City's Diversity Office works closely with the community and the Chandler Human Relations Commission to develop diversity programs and events.

Mission Statement

To promote mutual respect and inclusion in Chandler. We work toward the elimination of prejudice and discrimination among all citizens within our community.  We celebrate our mix of ages and genders,  persons with disabilities and diversity of racial, cultural, religious, socio-economic, sexual orientation or other personal identifying markers.
