Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging

The VIBE of Johnson County Government

VIBE logo: Voices of Inclusion, Belonging and Equity

At Johnson County Government, we call our efforts to create a workplace inclusive of everyone,“VIBE”.

VIBE stands for voices of inclusion, belonging, and equity. VIBE is also meant to embody the definition of the word “vibe”, meaning the atmosphere of a place as communicated to and felt by others. We hope what is experienced by Johnson County employees is an environment where people feel they matter, feel invited to contribute, have access to the support they need, and more. At Johnson County we believe everyone, from all organizational levels, has a role in advancing diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging.

VIBE efforts impact the county’s work environment, talent pipeline, services, and community. By transforming the county’s work environment, we will develop employees who value and leverage diversity within county teams, and champion inclusion and equity in day-to-day county services. This integrated approach benefits those we serve within the County, the Kansas City metropolitan area and beyond.
