Diversity and Inclusion Division (D&I)
The Diversity and Inclusion Division (D&I) is actively engaged in a number of initiatives to recruit, retain, and develop a diverse, inclusive, and high-performing workforce. D&I was established in support of Executive Order 13583, which directs departments and agencies of the Federal Government to develop and implement a more comprehensive, integrated, and strategic focus on diversity and inclusion as a key component of their human resource strategies. D&I also examines policy options, HHS-wide data trends, and employee survey findings that affect the Department's management of HR policy, specifically including diversity and inclusion throughout Operating and Staff Divisions.
