Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion at the Arlington Heights Park District

The Arlington Heights Park District commits itself to diversity, equity, and inclusion because these values make us a thriving community for all people. Creating a mutually respectful, multicultural and equitable environment does not happen on its own; it must be intentional.

We believe in equity and we will work to break down systems of oppression, including racism, sexism, homophobia, xenophobia and other forms of bias and hate. We reject racial and social barriers that limit and divide us, and we reject bias towards any group of people.

Arlington Heights Park District is an organization that welcomes, respects, and encourages the contributions of all people regardless of race, color, ethnicity, ancestry, national origin, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, marital and/or family status, language, mental and/or physical ability, military status, economic class, immigration status, foster status, body size, criminal history, or any of the other characteristics that are often used to divide people.
