Community Partners Advisory Board

The Community Partners Advisory Board is a group of successful business and community leaders who are taking a leadership role in promoting respect and understanding within Orange County’s ethnically diverse communities, and developing a rich cache of valuable resources in the process.

Our philosophy: greater harmony creates an environment conducive to building a viable future workforce, making Orange County a better place to live, work and do business.

As an indispensable arm of OC Human Relations, the Community Partners provide financial and intellectual resources necessary to develop programs essential to building respect and cooperation within our schools, neighborhoods and workplaces.
