Race and Social Justice (RSJ)

Digital heart

In Seattle Information Technology Department, we are committed to upholding the Race and Social Justice (RSJ) principles of the City of Seattle in all our operations, policies, and projects. Our primary goal is to guarantee digital access and equity for all customers who use our services - with a special focus on serving historically underserved and underrepresented populations. 

Seattle IT project teams conduct comprehensive evaluations known as Racial Equity Toolkits (RETs) and equity assessments for all project and budget proposals to ensure our RSJ objectives are met. These assessments help eliminate biases that could negatively affect our employees, customers, and the communities we serve.

A volunteer group of Seattle IT employees serves as our RSJ Change Team. These employees are passionate about seeing change both internally and externally. Their focus is on equitable outcomes for both Seattle residents through the services we provide and for employees through their work environment. 

As our commitment to fair and equal services grows, we will do more outreach and engagement with the community. 

The Seattle Information Technology Department is currently working to develop and support programs to provide community members (especially those in marginalized communities) with pathways to tech careers.
