The City of Welch is dedicated to increasing and embracing diversity in our workforce to reflect the population demographics of our community.  Every person we serve and work with brings a unique blend of identities, including racial, ethnic, language, religious, ability, and many more.  Being inclusive means honoring our diverse cultures, identities and backgrounds as well as our differences and similarities.  It is a reminder that individual experiences make us who we are.  We are committed to honoring the differences each of our staff, residents, and visitors bring, because we value the strength that comes from our individual and collective uniqueness.


When we draw on the wisdom and experience of our community we serve, we are better able to meet the needs of our customers— the community. The City’s goal is to have a reflective workforce, an inclusive work environment, and an equitable organization and community that is committed to delivering effective, relevant, and responsive service while ensuring fairness, dignity and respect to our colleagues, residents, and visitors.
