COG Heritage Calendar 2020Latest News

Check out the City's 2020 Heritage Calendar.


Want to be part of a call-to-action for 100 men to
mentor 100 boys in our community in 100 days?
Join the 100 Males Mentoring initiative today.

Mentoring guarantees young people that there is someone who cares about them, assures them they are not alone in dealing with day-to-day challenges, and makes them feel like they matter.

Research confirms that quality mentoring relationships have powerful positive effects on young people in a variety of personal, academic, and professional situations. Ultimately, mentoring connects a young person to personal growth and development, and social and economic opportunity.

Right now, there are children in our community waiting for someone like you to listen, guide and share your life experience with them.

Hear more about the journey from one of our mentors and his mentee below.

Message from City Manager's Office

It is the policy of City of Greensboro to hire qualified individuals. An integral part of this policy is to provide qualified individuals with equal employment opportunity in respect to all employment practices, including hiring, promotion, demotion, transfer, recruitment or recruitment advertising, layoff, termination, rates of pay or other forms of compensation and selection for training.

The organization will periodically review its employment practices to ensure that appropriate affirmative action is taken with respect to all covered individuals, as appropriate. Where there is under-representation on the City's work force of any population group for which the law requires Affirmative Action, the City is committed to making good faith efforts to correct the problem.

Additionally, the City is committed to providing a work environment free from harassment and discrimination. The City seeks to achieve and maintain a respectful and welcoming workplace for all members of the community. Harassment, discrimination and retaliation are prohibited conduct, and will not be tolerated.

Defining Equity and Inclusion
The City of Greensboro defines Equity and Inclusion as the collective mixture of differences and similarities that includes for example, individual and organizational characteristics, values, beliefs, experiences, backgrounds, preferences, and behaviors.
Equity and Inclusion Mission
The mission is to create a culture that is inclusive and provides strategies and best practices for internal and external customers to assist with recruitment, hiring, promoting, and engaging a diverse, results-oriented, high-performing workforce.
The City’s Equal Employment Opportunity and
Affirmative Action Program strives to:
  • Sustain an employment environment that provides equal opportunities to all applicants and employees
  • Discover and eliminate discriminatory artificial barriers and/or under-representation of any group including women, racial/ethnic minorities and people with disabilities
  • Hold our managers accountable for ensuring employment decisions and terms or conditions of employment are administered fairly and without discrimination.
