Restroom Access Policy (County)

The Office of LGBTQ Affairs helped to develop a policy for restroom access at County facilities that is more inclusive for people of all genders, and recognizes that transgender and non-binary communities are more vulnerable to experiencing harassment in public restrooms and restrooms at their workplace. The policy includes more inclusive approaches for gender-specific restrooms, and the creation of more all gender restrooms and signages.

Policy Against Discrimination

Policy Against Discrimination, Harassment, and Retaliation (County)

The Office of LGBTQ Affairs helped to update the County’s policy against discrimination and harassment with regard to any aspect of the recruitment or employment process with the County, and that no person shall be denied or provided unequal access to programs, services, or contracting opportunities with the County. The policy specifically includes protections from discrimination and harassment on the basis of gender, gender identity, and sexual orientation, among other identities and lived experiences.
