The Diverse Empowered Employees of Portland (DEEP) envisions that Affinity Groups are 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. If you would like more information on DEEP or how you can get involved, please send an email to DEEP at DEEP@portlandoregon.gov.
Affinity groups are voluntary, employee-driven groups that are organized around a particular shared interest or dimension.
A citywide survey was taken early 2017 and the results are here.
