Equity and Inclusion Cabinet
We're advancing racial justice and social, economic, and health equity in the City of Boston.
Our mission is to ensure that every resident has fair access to City resources and opportunities. We achieve this by embedding equity and inclusion into our current City practices, building our collective capacity on issues of racial and social justice, and fostering a more welcoming and accessible city.
The departments in the Equity and Inclusion Cabinet take an anti-poverty approach to their work, focusing on the following areas:
- Improving outcomes for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, people of color) communities, in particular immigrants, women, and LGBTQ+ residents
- Increasing access for people with disabilities and those who speak a language other than English
- Eliminating barriers to fair housing and human rights

City of Boston Equity Statement
The City of Boston has played a role in causing and perpetuating the inequities in our society. To break down these barriers, we are embedding equity and inclusion into everything we do.
We define equity as ensuring every community has the resources it needs to thrive in Boston. This requires the active process of meeting individuals where they are. Inclusion is engaging every resident to build a more welcoming and supportive city. We are building a city for everyone, where diversity makes us a more empowered collective.
