Affinity groups are voluntary, employee-led groups that are organized around social identities, marginalized groups, and life experiences. The City of Madison supports our employees in participating in Affinity Groups that are in alignment with our City’s vision and values. This document provides structure and guidance for affinity groups to be equitable and successful. It includes information about who can participate, time commitments, creating a new affinity group, supervisor approval, and funding support.
