    Currently, the area I work in will not track gender to even assess gender disparities. The culture of the historically male-dominated field perpetuates a sexualized environment with opportunities being limited. This public-sector work has little in the way of required diversity training, although the field interacts with the community in vary diverse fashions. The negativity of individuals in upper-management levels creates a dismal atmosphere that lacks true leadership. The lack of good communication stalls opportunities for growth and improvement.

Open City Hall is not a certified voting system or ballot box. As with any public comment process, participation in Open City Hall is voluntary.
