Belonging in Beaumont: Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) Framework

EDI Web Banner 2

As the City of Beaumont grows, our community has welcomed residents of various racial, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds, gender identities, sexual orientations, religions, abilities, and socio-economic statuses. It is our commitment to provide an equitable and inclusive environment, where all residents feel a sense of belonging and have opportunities to thrive.

To achieve this, the City of Beaumont, in partnership with LevelUp Planning, has developed the below Belonging in Beaumont: Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (EDI) framework. This framework will be a roadmap to guide Beaumont on becoming a more equitable, diverse, and inclusive environment for everyone.
