We will enhance healthy and active lifestyles while connecting more people to nature, parks, and programs. We will do this through stewardship of public resources and by providing programs/spaces to fulfill unmet needs.
The mission of the Tualatin Hills Park & Recreation District is to provide high-quality park and recreation facilities, programs, services, and natural areas that meet the needs of the diverse communities it serves.
Diversity & Inclusion Statement
We provide all individuals the opportunity to play, learn, and explore, and all employees and volunteers the opportunity to further the district's mission.
We do this by removing barriers to participation, fostering an inclusive culture, and offering programs that celebrate the district's diverse population.
Diversity is understanding that everyone is unique and to recognize our individual differences or similarities. It encompasses acceptance and respect while embracing background, professional experience, skills and specialization, values and culture, and social class.
Equity refers to the qualities of justness, fairness, impartiality and even-handedness. This involves factoring in aspects of the system that have put particular groups at a disadvantage. Equity is inclusive equality with intentional focus on social and racial justice.
Inclusion is acknowledging, welcoming, respecting, supporting and valuing the authentic participation of any individual or group. It’s creating an environment that engages multiple perspectives, differing ideas, and individuals from different backgrounds while providing a sense of belonging.
Access -the A in DEIA- is in recognition of THPRD’s leadership and commitment to Access for All, as well as, the acknowledgment that for it all to work cohesively we need to integrate access.
