Diversity & Inclusion


The Office of Diversity and Inclusion is an educational, advocacy, and compliance department of the City of Fremont. Through education we will partner with Terra Community College and Fremont City Schools to offer inclusive trainings, programs, and services to the community. Through advocacy we focus our efforts to eliminate barriers to mental health access in partnership with the Board of Mental Health of Seneca, Sandusky, and Wyandot Counties. Through compliance we partner with the City’s Safety Service Director to ensure inclusive hiring practices & trainings, and the Community Relations Commission to review citizens’ concerns.
