Commitment to Diversity

Diversity is built into the very fabric of our culture and has connections to our core values. The California Department of Housing and Community Development (HCD) values diversity at all levels of the department and is committed to fostering an environment in which employees from a variety of backgrounds, cultures, and personal experiences are welcomed and can thrive. It is our belief that the diversity of our employees and their unique ideas inspire innovative solutions to complex housing challenges.

HCD has a three-tiered approach to ensure a diverse and inclusive environment:

  1. Workforce — We recruit and retain a high-performance team inclusive of our state's rich diversity.
  2. Workplace — We cultivate a workplace culture that values the qualities a diverse workforce brings to the organization by actively educating our leadership and staff to increase diverse and inclusive awareness, understanding, and skills that lead to greater quality, respect, and accountability.
  3. Marketplace — We serve our members with sensitivity to their diverse perspectives.
