Affirmative Action/Equal Employment Opportunity Office

Overview

The Affirmative Action/Equal Employment Opportunity (AA/EEO) Office ensures that Contra Costa County's (the County) employees, applicants, and vendors are provided a professional environment which is free from discrimination and/or harassment. The AA/EEO Office also ensures non-discrimination in the execution of contracts while promoting positive external customer relations.

  • The goal of the AA/EEO Office is for Contra Costa County's (the County) Workforce data to reflect the diversity of the County's Census Residential Labor Force data. In order to assess the diversity in County employment, the County compares the Labor Force data (race, sex, ethnicity, and job classification) from the most recent U.S. Census Report to the County's employee data. The County makes every effort to achieve this goal by targeting recruitment and employment efforts which result in diverse applicant pools of qualified candidates. Currently, the County's diverse workforce is the result of the leadership of the Board of Supervisors and the commitment of the County Administrator, Department Heads, managers, supervisors, employees, unions, and community groups and organizations.
  • The purpose of the County's Disability Program is to increase the employment participation of disabled applicants and employees and provide assistance to disabled employees and citizens receiving services, programs, and activities from the County.
