Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility

A workforce that draws from the full diversity of the American people is better able to serve the nation. 

In the United States, diversity is one of our greatest strengths. And in the federal government, our mission is to recruit and support the best possible federal workforce, so we can deliver for the American people.  

The business case for diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA) is clear. When experienced and diverse teams tap their collective knowledge, we get better results. We know that prioritizing DEIA will improve individual and team performance. To get the most from our workforce, every employee should feel welcomed. 

OPM is eager to work with agencies across the federal government to elevate DEIA and access the full potential of their workforce.
