Diversity and Inclusion

           Diversity and inclusion are core values of the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Western District of Michigan.  Diversity encompasses age, ethnicity, gender, disability, race, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, national origin, political affiliation, socioeconomic, marital, and family status, and geographic region.  Our Office fosters a culture of inclusion, mutual trust and respect, ensuring that everyone has an equal opportunity to participate, contribute, and advance.  In accordance with these principles, the Western District of Michigan supports the Attorney General’s commitment to promote diversity within the District.
