Howard County's Diversity Day Celebration

Wednesday, September 26, 2018 
10:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
Meadowbrook Athletic Complex (MAC)
5001 Meadowbrook Lane, Ellicott City, MD 21043

Howard County Government strives to foster an environment that welcomes and values diversity within the County. Diversity Day allows us to come together and encourage respect, harmony and tolerance, increase understanding of contributions made by persons from a variety of ethnic and cultural groups, and enhance and strengthen communication among County employees. To celebrate that diversity, Howard County Government is sponsoring a Diversity Day for its employees.

Come enjoy an array of ethnic food, entertainment and homemade arts, crafts and goods!

Please be sure to obtain permission from your supervisor to attend and ensure that coverage for your office is maintained throughout the duration of the event.  Everyone is encouraged to attend!
