Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Finance is committed to the engagement, retention, and promotion of a diverse workforce and building a culture where differences are valued.
To further this commitment, Finance has undertaken initiatives to more fully realize an organization that reflects the diversity of the Californians we serve, achieves a team-oriented, inclusive, and respectful environment for all staff, and considers equity within analytical and decision-making processes. This includes the formation of a Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Workgroup (established in August 27, 2020) that is open to all employees. The workgroup’s mission is to advise executive staff on strategies to recruit, develop and retain a diverse and inclusive workforce; facilitate decision-making that considers equity; promote mutual respect of others’ points of view and experiences; encourage the sharing of expertise from personal knowledge and experience; and support a culture of integrity and authenticity to advance the goals of the Administration.
Finance is committed to achieving an environment in which employees from a variety of backgrounds, cultures, and personal experiences are welcomed and can thrive, recognizing that this goal requires a thoughtful and continuous process.
