Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (DEIA)

On June 25, 2021, President Biden signed Executive Order 14035, Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility in the Federal Workforce. This Executive Order launched a Government-wide initiative to cultivate a federal workforce that draws from the full diversity of the Nation and that advances equitable employment opportunities. The Executive Order reaffirms that the United States is at its strongest when our Nation’s workforce reflects the communities it serves, and when our public servants are fully equipped to advance equitable outcomes for all American communities.

The Department of Commerce (DOC) is committed to implementing Executive Order 14035 and has developed the DOC DEIA Strategic Plan 2022-2023.  This comprehensive plan will help the Department and bureaus make progress in recruitment, career advancement, and ensure that our workplace is accessible to all while strengthening our anti-harassment efforts across the Department.
