Diversity and inclusion

Our commitment

We are committed to maintaining a diverse and inclusive workplace that integrates equity across the entire organization. Our greatest asset is our people and they are imperative to ensuring the FBI can build trust, uphold the Constitution and serve all communities.

About diversity and inclusion

Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI)

ODI was established in 2013 to develop and execute strategies that support our diverse workforce and foster a culture that integrates diversity, equity and inclusion. Linked together, diversity and inclusion drive innovation and allow us to attract and retain our workforce. It is essential to the success of our mission that we foster an organizational culture where you feel comfortable speaking up, contributing your perspective and being yourself at work.

Once accepted into the FBI, you can get involved by joining a Diversity Advisory Committee (DAC) or Employee Resource Group (ERG), serving as a diversity and inclusion coordinator and participating in the Cross-Cultural Mentoring and Sponsorship Program.

Diversity Advisory Committee (DAC)

DACs serve as formal champions of issues, solutions and topics that affect underrepresented communities within our workforce. The committees work to improve employee experiences, encourage engagement in diversity, equity and inclusion matters and promote cultural awareness activities. Our DACs have made impactful changes within our workplace such as spearheading adding reflection and meditation spaces across the FBI, leading the establishment of lactation rooms and supplies for nursing mothers, as well as proposing changes to our leadership selection process to promote equity, to name a few.

Once you are an FBI employee, you can apply to be on the leadership team of a DAC, volunteer to be on a sub-committee or join a DAC distribution list to learn about and participate in DAC programs, initiatives or events.
