Equal Employment Opportunity

At the City of Minneapolis, our commitment to diversity and inclusion is crucial to living up to our values and fulfilling our goals.  Two of our most important stated goals are equity and running the City well.  One of the most important ways that we achieve those goals is by holding ourselves accountable for equal opportunity as an employer. 

The current Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Report, for the period from January 1, 2014 to December 31, 2015, is available below.  This report measures the current state of our progress toward having a city workforce that is more reflective of the community we serve that aligns with the affirmative action policy statement as described in Civil Service Commission Rule 5.
