Diversity and Inclusion Statements

We are an Equal Opportunity Employer committed to creating and supporting a diverse and inclusive work and educational community that is free of all forms of discrimination. We do not tolerate discrimination or harassment on the basis of age, color, disability, gender identity, genetic information, national origin, parental status, political affiliation, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation or veteran status. 

We promote access, inclusion and diversity for all staff, believing that these qualities are foundational components of an outstanding working environment and in keeping with our mission. We actively seek to increase the diversity of our workforce and are interested in candidates whose experience and qualifications support an ongoing commitment to this core quality.

By inclusion, we mean creating an environment where we equally acknowledge, value and respect all people, enabling them to attain their fullest potential. We specifically intend inclusion to mean acknowledging and valuing differences, knowing that the full participation of people with a diversity of perspectives, backgrounds, identities and experience strengthens our workplaces and our profession. 

To us inclusion means expecting the workplace culture to change to include people, rather than expecting people to conform any aspect of their identities, perspectives or backgrounds to the workplace culture.

Last year, for instance, our employees attended specialized trainings on a wide variety of topics, including computer forensics, data analytics, interview skills, and health care fraud. As part of our commitment to a positive and supportive workplace, we also provide office-wide trainings on subjects such as preventing violence in the workplace, ethics, fraud reporting, implicit bias and sexual harassment prevention.

We also seek to nurture professional development in our employees by sponsoring them to earn certifications through professional organizations, such as the Association of Inspectors General and the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners.

Employees in supervisory roles in our office have also participated in the Commonwealth’s year-long CORE Management Program, which teaches participants how to align leadership-readiness strategies with business priorities.

From entry level to management, we are committed to development at all levels.
