ODIThe Office of Diversity & Inclusion works to ensure equality of economic opportunity for all Jersey City residents. We collaborate with City departments and community partners to empower residents through business and workforce advancement opportunities.

As the most diverse city in the country, Jersey City truly represents a melting pot of nations, ethnicities, and cultural traditions. known as NJ's "Golden Door," Jersey City served as a gateway for those who passed the Statue of Liberty to step onto our shores through Ellis Island. Linguistic diversity also sets Jersey City apart, with 72 different languages spoken in City schools. We invite you to explore the variety of services we offer to meet the vast array of needs of our diverse community.
