Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Manager

Meet Dr. Geneace Williams

Williams.jpgIn February 2021, the City of Naperville welcomed Dr. Geneace Williams as the City’s first Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) Manager. In the time since, Dr. Williams has learned a great deal about Naperville and its many facets.

Through listening sessions, she has been able to meet employees, community leaders, members of organizations, and residents to glean diverse perspectives on Naperville. Understanding the history and culture of an organization or entity is a critical component to a successful journey in diversity work. Tying DEI to the City’s 2019 revised mission statement that emphasizes diversity and inclusiveness in our community will keep focus on achieving this important City endeavor.
