The City of Wilsonville’s staff and elected officials are committed to collaborating with the community to develop meaningful, actionable and sustainable strategies to support a more inclusive Wilsonville.

In January, the City Council directed City staff to establish a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Committee to set the City's DEI strategies and serve as a liaison between City Hall and the Wilsonville community. The City Council appointed 13 committee members in May 2021.

The group began monthly meetings in July 2021, serving as a direct liaison between the greater community and City Hall, amplifying the voices and addressing the needs of people traditionally under-represented or excluded in government. The group is aiding the City in identifying and addressing that which excludes or marginalizes anyone on any basis, including and not limited to their age, gender, race, culture, sexual orientation, religion or abilities.

Initially, the Committee’s work is being guided by DEI consultant and author Bill de la Cruz, who has worked extensively with several local municipalities to identify structural barriers and yield more inclusive cities.
