Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

We Welcome All

“We’re always open and your invitation never expires.” This is our mantra.  

If you’re looking for a place to visit and experience a variety of cultures, activities, and people, then Sacramento is the place for you. Whether you’re a meeting or event planner, tour operator, or a visitor looking for a weekend getaway, Sacramento is the place for you. Because we welcome you as you are.

Sacramento works hard to walk the walk and not just talk the talk. Do we get it right all the time? No. But we work at it every day to be inclusive and welcoming.  We look forward to having you in our city adding your authenticity to our mosaic.
 

Diverse Community Representation

Sacramento does not run from nor disparage the words “diversity,” “equity” and “inclusion.” They represent strength not weakness. They represent small and family-owned businesses that contribute to the tourism industry. They represent neighborhoods where visitors discover generational restaurants and shops that provide a unique Sacramento experience.
