The Equal Opportunity Division’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.


The County of Santa Clara will reflect a diverse, inclusive, and harmonious environment where each person is valued.

Our Services:

The Equal Opportunity Division (EOD) provides comprehensive services to the County organization in compliance with County policies and federal and state laws.  EOD administers a protected-class discrimination/harassment/retaliation 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 and other forms of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation, as well as training regarding diversity and reasonable accommodation.  EOD also develops the County's Equal Employment Opportunity Plan and provides input regarding 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 more productive within their roles and as a team.  We offer training, facilitated conflict-resolution sessions, healing circles, staff coaching, management consulting, and ongoing engagements for departments experiencing high levels of interpersonal conflict and in need of longer-term assistance.  For more information or to request CRS services, contact [email protected].
