Our Mission

To act as a catalyst to foster a culture which recognizes, accepts and values the individual differences of its employees and is responsive to the changing needs of our diverse community.

Our Vision

To have a culture where employees understand, value and sustain inclusion.


  1. To create a culture of inclusion
    where all employees are able to succeed and are valued for their contributions to the efficient functioning of Kent County Government. Establishing a culture of inclusion will assist Kent County in maximizing its operational effectiveness, as it is our belief that team members are more willing and able to contribute when they are valued for their contributions and included in their organization's progress.
  2. To promote cultural understanding among our employees
