City Organizations

The Office of Equal Opportunity & Diversity Programs (“EODP”) oversees and manages the City’s equal employment opportunity function and overall compliance with federal, state, and local laws and administrative policies prohibiting employment discrimination.

EODP investigates internal complaints involving employment discrimination and handles charges of discrimination filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, Florida Commission on Human Relations, and Miami-Dade County Commission on Human Rights. EODP also acts to prevent or decrease instances of discrimination by developing and implementing instructional programs emphasizing the City's prohibition of discrimination in employment; and highlighting the importance of diversity in the workforce. Additionally, EODP monitors various employee recruiting, selection, and promotional procedures, and is responsible for the City’s fulfillment of certain federal reporting requirements, and provides support to the City's Equal Opportunity Advisory Board and the Miami Commission on the Status of Women.
