Diversity and Inclusion

The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) is committed to sustaining a diverse community and a work environment that is welcoming, respectful and encouraging to all. We foster a culture of inclusion that celebrates and cultivates diversity along multiple dimensions, including race, ethnicity, sex, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, age, national origin, socioeconomic status, religion, ability, culture and experience.

DHHS believes that diversity and inclusion at all levels of the organization are essential to our organizational sustainability and to the successful implementation of our mission. A diverse workforce brings varied perspectives on how to engage with our clients and partners, design effective programs and confront business challenges to achieve success. Our employees are our most valuable resource and the diversity of our employees is a critical source of strength.

DHHS attracts, develops and retains a diverse staff at all levels and areas of the organization by serving as a champion for diversity and inclusion through our roles as an employer. As an active contributor to our communities, DHHS continues to work to ensure health, safety and well-being for all.
