Dutchess County Government is committed to ensuring its policies and procedures are non-discriminatory and contribute to Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) outcomes. EEO is about establishing and maintaining a work environment free of discrimination and promoting the values of diversity through the daily practice of professionalism, respect, acceptance and understanding. This means having workplace policies, practices and behaviors that are fair and do not disadvantage people because they are attributed to particular diverse groups.
