Valuing Diversity

Our Commitment

Justice is proud of its talented and dynamic workforce, and recognizes that its employees are its most important asset. Justice employees are the vital link that ensures the fair administration of justice for all Americans. The Department is stronger, more credible, and more effective when its workforce includes highly-qualified individuals whose backgrounds reflect our nation’s rich diversity.

The Department strives to ensure that its management practices and organizational culture reflect its commitment to building and maintaining a workplace environment that promotes excellence and creates opportunities for all employees to maximize their potential, fully contribute to the Department’s mission, and serve the Nation. At Justice, diversity extends beyond race and gender. It includes differences in culture, ethnicity, economics, status as a veteran, generations, geography, sexual orientation, and includes individuals with disabilities.

In addition, Justice has several employee affinity groups whose membership share a common interest such as race, sexual orientation and cultural identity.

DOJ Ambassadors

We welcome applications from candidates who are interested in positively contributing to Justice and hope that you will consider joining the dedicated public servants at the Department of Justice. If you would like to learn more about Justice or a particular DOJ component or office by talking one-on-one with a Justice attorney, you may contact one of our DOJ Ambassadors. Ambassadors are assigned to specific law schools, but please feel free to reach out to any volunteer on the list to learn more about their work.
