Bellevue is proud to be a diverse destination where all people are welcome. The City of Bellevue has long focused on diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) issues and opportunities. We are proud that about half the population of Bellevue identify as people of color. In 2014, Bellevue adopted the Bellevue Diversity Advantage Plan. The plan summary addresses six major areas: cultural competence in government and the community, human services, public safety, education, economic development, and civic engagement. Visit Bellevue proudly stands with the City of Bellevue in embracing our diversity as a major advantage and in welcoming the world to visit us.
