Attorney General Holder's statement on Diversity.

The U.S. Department of Justice is an Equal Opportunity/Reasonable Accommodation Employer. Except where otherwise provided by law, there will be no discrimination because of color, race, religion, national origin, politics, marital status, disability, age, sex, sexual orientation, membership or non-membership in an employee organization, or on the basis of personal favoritism.

For more information on diversity at Department of Justice, please go to: The Department of Justice - Equal Employment Opportunity Website.

The Northern District of Illinois (ILN) further supports the Attorney General's commitment to promote diversity within the district:

“Diversity is a core value of our district and an important consideration in every aspect of hiring and management. Our goal is to be proactive in our diversity recruitment and maintain a diverse staff. Our district fosters a culture of inclusion, mutual trust and respect, ensuring that everyone has an equal opportunity to participate, contribute, and advance. This positive work environment will allow employees to achieve their full potential and to accomplish the Department’s diversity mission.”

The Department of Justice welcomes and encourages applications from persons with physical and mental disabilities. The Department is firmly committed to satisfying its affirmative obligations under the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, to ensure that persons with disabilities have every opportunity to be hired and advanced on the basis of merit within the Department of Justice. This agency provides reasonable accommodation to applicants with disabilities where appropriate. If you need a reasonable accommodation for any part of the application and hiring process, please notify the agency. Determinations on requests for reasonable accommodation will be made on a case by case basis.
