DEI Task Force

In 2019, Lake Oswego City Council appointed the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Task Force to begin identifying barriers to inclusive public engagement and City employment. The Task Force is committed to providing multifaceted and easily-accessible focus groups and surveys for various stakeholders who live, work, recreate or otherwise engage the City of Lake Oswego and its services. The information gathered will help the Task Force provide recommendations to Council and foster discussions centered around creating a community of trust and belonging. To learn more about the charges of the Task Force, please read About the DEI Task Force.

Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

The City of Lake Oswego aspires to be an organization where every person feels safe, welcomed, supported, and included.
