Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the Public Service Workforce


A new research report provides a comprehensive analysis of the diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) landscape across the public service workforce. The analysis includes historical and projected data for a wide variety of occupations, and it indicates areas where certain gender, racial, or ethnic groups may be under- or over-represented.  Knowing where over- or under-representation exists can help public service employers analyze the impacts of layoffs, retirements, staff development, training, and targeted recruitment efforts.

Topics covered in the report include diversity in age, veteran status, LGBTQIA+ identification, disability, cognitive diversity, religion, language, national origin, educational attainment, criminal history, and intersectionality, or how belonging in two or more of those categories might result in disparate treatment.  Click the image below to download the report or view the related data appendix.
