Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI)
Embracing the Anne Arundel County Initiative
On February 3, 2022, the Anne Arundel County Department of Detention Facilities formed a departmental employee Equity, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Committee for the purposes of reviewing, identifying and recommending equity and inclusion initiatives.

"Equality is leaving the door open for anyone who has the means to approach it; Equity is ensuring there is a pathway to that door for those who need it."
