The mission of the Affirmative Action Division is to ensure that the City of Madison provides equal opportunity for all employees and citizens seeking access to service or employment opportunities, without regard to their race, religion, color, age, disability, sex or national origin.

The City of Madison’s Department of Civil Rights, as a catalyst for change, strives to improve the quality of life for all people. We promote equality and the prevention and elimination of discrimination through education and enforcement.

We see the City of Madison as a dynamic place, where the inherent worth of each individual is esteemed and fostered, enabling them to reach their full potential.
