The City of Irvine is recognized as one of the most ethnically diverse and fully integrated cities in the country. With a population of more than 310,000 residents, the City has grown significantly since its incorporation in 1971. Many residents, businesses, and employees have selected Irvine to live and work because of its history of celebrating diversity, equity, and inclusion. The City is committed to ensuring that every person living and working in our community is treated with fairness, and has access to equitable services and opportunities.

On January 26, 2021, the Irvine City Council passed the resolution reaffirming Irvine's commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) in the Irvine community. The City of Irvine embraces and celebrates diversity in all aspects of our community and fosters an environment that represents the many different cultures, backgrounds, and perspectives that make up our unique and dynamic community.
