The mission of the Office of Diversity and Equal Opportunity is to ensure that the work environment promotes equal opportunity for all employees and that it is free of discriminatory practices with a commitment to increase the linguistic diversity and cultural competence of the workforce.

The Commissioner’s Diversity Advisory Council (CDAC) was created to assist the Commissioner and the Office of Diversity and Equal Opportunity in maintaining the DOC’s diversity objectives. CDAC’s working model consists of 3 teams concentrating in the area of Hiring and Promotion, Mentoring and Outreach/Recruitment and Policy Development. Part of the responsibility of this working group is to identify challenges and opportunities for achieving full access and having an inclusive workforce, in so doing, recommending solutions to senior leaders. Appointed employees represent all divisions/institutions across the department.
