The Equal Opportunity Department’s mission is to assist the County Government in creating and managing a diverse organization where respect, empowerment, and inclusion are the way the County does business.
County of Santa Clara will reflect a diverse, inclusive, and harmonious environment where each person is valued.
Equal Opportunity Department (EOD) provides comprehensive services to the County Organization in compliance with Federal and State laws, and County Policies. EOD administers a discrimination/harassment complaint process for employees and applicants for employment; administers the County's Reasonable Accommodation Policy and Procedures, and conducts training in the prevention of Sexual Harassment, Discrimination, Harassment and Retaliation; Diversity, and Reasonable Accommodation. The Equal Opportunity Department develops the County's Equal Employment Opportunity Plan, and develops and administers the Disadvantage Business Enterprise Program.
EOD also provides Conflict Resolution Services (CRS) for County staff and departments. Our purpose is to support the development of healthy conflict resolution practices at individual, interpersonal and institutional levels. Through our program, we contribute to a harmonious work environment where staff can be happier, healthier and productive within our roles and as a team. We offer training, facilitated conflict resolution sessions, healing circles, staff coaching, management consulting, and on-going engagements for departments experiencing high levels of conflict and in need of longer-term assistance.
