We are committed to equal opportunity across the board, and will use best practices to challenge and respond to bias, discrimination, and harassment. 

Inclusive excellence becoming foundational in every program, process, policy, and procedure within the city. As we work together to become leaders in unapologetic inclusion. The DEI&B welcomes any ideas, questions, let me know by emailing wfahari@beverlyma.gov

The City of Beverly has retained the consulting services of HR&A Advisors to conduct a racial equity audit of our city policies, procedures and programs. The racial equity audit will help to ensure we are acting with intent to assess whether and how past institutional practices of racism and unconscious bias have and continue to influence city policies and practices within the City of Beverly. We welcome your commitment and partnership in working towards these goals and building a more diverse, inclusive and equitable Beverly.
