inclusion for all, especially marginalized groups. We pledge to continue the ongoing, difficult
and essential work needed to address institutional racism and historical inequities in all forms.
Research has found that candidates, especially women, are less likely to apply for a job unless
they believe they meet 100% of the hiring criteria. The city’s talent acquisition goals include
hiring the candidate who is best able to meet the performance objectives of the role. We
therefore encourage persons with non-traditional skill sets and experiences to apply, even if
you believe you do not meet 100% of the qualifications and hiring criteria described.
