City Council commits to Unity Pledge

On Aug. 25, the Scottsdale City Council unanimously approved the city’s signature on the Unity Pledge, a concerted effort by Arizona businesses and individuals to advance workplace equality and equal treatment in housing and hospitality for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) individuals and their allies.

The council’s action affirms the city’s commitment to diversity and inclusion, and is a public expression of Scottsdale’s desire to be a welcoming place for all people – both as an employer and as a community.

“This message resonates with more than just LGBT citizens,” said David Simmons, a development services representative who chairs the city’s LGBT employee resource group. “It resonates with the entire community and people who want to come here.”
