The Diversity Council advises the Executive on ways that the Diversity Council can help achieve the County's diversity goals. The Diversity Council, both on its own and in partnership with sponsoring departments plan and produce a variety of diversity educational events throughout the year.

Why is the Diversity Council necessary?
As the diversity of the citizens of Snohomish County broadens county government must change and adapt to provide the best service possible to the citizens whom we serve. Honoring diversity has been shown to be an effective tool in improving customer satisfaction and increasing understanding. The Diversity Council provides linkages between county employees, the diverse communities they represent and the Executive to advance the diversity issues confronting them.
