What we do

The Kenney Administration is committed to building an inclusive government that looks like the City of Philadelphia. To that end, the Chief Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Officer makes recommendations over the long term that work to build a more inclusive City workforce related to race, ethnicity, disability, gender, gender identity, and sexual orientation.

The Chief Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Officer works with those in government and in the private sector to increase opportunities for all who have suffered from discriminatory practices. This includes reducing barriers in contracting so that every person and every business has the chance to succeed. It means supporting commerce in neighborhoods that have been harmed by unequal lending practices. Overall, it means leveraging Philadelphia’s talent and diverse culture to make our economy stronger.
