It is important that Somerset County embraces and commits to a philosophy of inclusion that respects the cultural norms of our citizens and taxpayers, our current employees, and the future of Somerset County Government as a place of employment. This commitment is crucial to the services we provide, our mission, and making vibrant connections.
On September 25, 2018, the Board of County Commissioners approved the following Somerset County Diversity Statement:
The County of Somerset is home to a population of promising individuals from around the world, making Somerset County a unique vibrant community because of its diversity. The County’s diversity is among our greatest assets.
Diversity is fundamental to everything we do in Somerset County. It is inclusive of not only those who look different but those who may think differently.
When Somerset County recognizes, values, and embraces diversity, we are recognizing, valuing and embracing the uniqueness of each individual.
