The Human Relations Diversity Board's objective is to promote understanding, respect, goodwill, and equality among all citizens and businesses of the City of Ocoee.
From the Human Relations Diversity Board (HRDB):
The HRDB has new appointees and a passion for serving our great city. We want to hear from YOU! Our purpose is to represent residents of all backgrounds and cultures as we make recommendations to our city leaders varying from cultural celebrations, diversity & inclusion initiatives, historical acknowledgements, etc. What holiday or cultural celebration would you like to see the city of Ocoee recognize? We encourage all to take part in our in-person monthly meetings — meeting at City Hall the 1st Thursday of every month (pending quorum).
“Diversity is a fact. Equity is a choice. Inclusion is an action. Belonging is an outcome.” — Arthur Chan
