About the Office of Diversity, Equity & Belonging:
The County of Santa Clara has created a new office to build organizational capacity to address systemic in- equities that contribute to poor outcomes for historically marginalized communities. Dr. Analilia García, who is trained in public health and has built a career championing social justice, started on January 10, 2022 as Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer, and will lead the newly created Office of Equity, Diversity and Belonging.
As Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer, Dr. García will set up the infrastructure for the brand-new Office, which will include a team of staff that will support all County departments to assess programs, services, and policies for explicit considerations of equity. These efforts will help to ensure that strategies and actions reduce rather than perpetuate inequities for all residents of Santa Clara County.
