Affinity Groups

Affinity groups are voluntary, employee-driven groups that are organized around a particular shared interest or dimension. DEEP envisions that affinity groups will be organized around the protected classes set forth in non-discrimination laws such as race, disability, ethnicity, gender or sexual orientation. However, DEEP will consider approving any Affinity Group that is organized around other historical barriers to an equitable and inclusive work environment. Each affinity group must be open to any and all employees within the City of Portland.
