Tysons Partnership Commits to Fairfax County’s One Fairfax and More News

At its November board meeting, the Tysons Partnership board adopted a resolution endorsing the County’s One Fairfax policy and committing to incorporate its guiding principles of diversity, equity and inclusion into our work program. Our commitment—always–is to an economically successful and socially thriving Tysons. 

The resolution restated Tysons Partnership commitment to “inclusive development” which was declared to be among the Partnership’s public purpose goals and methods. The Partnership will work collaboratively with Fairfax County Government toward key objectives.

The resolution committed stating, “The Partnership embraces principles of equity and inclusion as a cornerstone of an economically and socially flourishing urban center.”

One Fairfax declares, “all residents deserve an equitable opportunity to succeed – regardless of their race, color, sex, nationality, sexual orientation, religion, disability, income or where they live.
