Coconino County was honored with the Inclusive Workplace Award recently by the Diversity Leaderships Alliance (DLA).

The DLA works in coordination with the Arizona State affiliate of the Society for Human Resource Management (AZSHRM) to recognize Arizona individuals, corporations and organizations that lead by example and create an inclusive environment that strengthens the community. Coconino County was recognized with the 2020 Inclusive Workplace Award, selected among other worthy organizations including ADP, Cox Communications, CSAA Insurance Group and the U of A College of Medicine. 

Coconino County received the award at a virtual event on October 30. During the ceremony, the County was recognized for its intentional inclusion and diversity practices and policies, including its Diversity and Inclusion Program which began in 2014 and formally celebrates diversity. Furthermore, the County was recognized for its innovative community councils: The African Diaspora Advisory Council, The Hispanic Advisory Council and the Indigenous Peoples Advisory Council which each work as a liaison between Coconino County and its diverse communities. The Board of Supervisors adopts proclamations that celebrate diversity, and personnel policies include diversity, non-discrimination, harassment prohibition and breastfeeding in the workplace assurances.

“The diversity of Coconino County as a workplace is reflective of the rich diversity of the County itself. Residents of our County speak many languages, embrace many cultures and hold true to many identities that make our community so unique. Diversity is a core value of our county organization. It is with intentionality and respect that we work each day at Coconino County to promote diversity, inclusion and equity,” said Chairwoman Liz Archuleta.

Coconino County elected officials and staff members have been recognized by the Diversity Leadership Alliance in the past, including Chairwoman Archuleta, Vice-Chair Fowler, Treasurer Benatar and Deputy County Manager Lucinda Andreani.
