WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?

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.”
