Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion focuses on enacting collaborative, emergent strategies to advance CNM's six core values. 

We define equity in our community as "all people in Albuquerque are economically secure, healthy and thriving in engaged and honored communities."
