Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility

Build a Workforce that Reflects the Diversity of America

Even with decades of progress building a federal workforce that reflects America, the enduring legacies of employment discrimination, systemic racism, and gender inequality are still felt today. Too many underserved communities remain under-represented in the federal workforce, especially in positions of leadership.

For your agency to gain maximum benefit from focusing on the administration’s priority of a more diverse workforce, every employee needs to feel welcome and motivated to work to their greatest potential. Removing barriers to equal opportunity and strengthening the ability to recruit, hire, develop, promote, and retain the best talent results in better outcomes for the American public.
