Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging

The VIBE of JCPRD and Johnson County Government

vibe-logo-rgb-4cAt JCPRD, we call our efforts to create a workplace inclusive of everyone "VIBE."

VIBE stands for voices of inclusion, belonging, and equity. We hope JCPRD employees experience an environment where people

  • feel they matter
  • feel invited to contribute
  • have access to the support they need, and more.

VIBE efforts impact the county’s work environment, talent pipeline, services, and community. 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. Everyone has a role in advancing diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging. 

Johnson County Park and Recreation District believes that all people deserve equitable access to parks, facilities, programs and services. JCPRD acknowledges that historic, systemic, institutional and physical barriers create disparities that limit opportunities for participation and leading healthy fulfilling lives. JCPRD strives to make this commitment to diversity, equity, inclusion and justice evident in all aspects of its work and organization. By commiting to these values and vision, JCPRD can become an organization that fully welcomes and celebrates all that live, work and play here.
