Los Angeles is one of the most diverse cities in America, yet not one of the most equitable. Too many residents lack access to the opportunities our region has to offer. Local government should champion fairness both in word and deed, including with its own workforce. L.A.’s leaders have taken action to achieve a more level playing field, but more is needed. Controller Galperin’s report, Diversity with Equity: Achieving Fairness at the City of Los Angeles, addresses inequity among City employees of different ethnic backgrounds, specifically pointing out the lower pay earned by employees of color.
