The OIG is committed to integrating DEIA into our operations and mission work, as diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences are critical to how we do our work and who we are as an OIG. As such, the OIG has established a DEIA infrastructure. Through the efforts of these people and teams, the OIG looks to help empower staff and support leaders in optimizing our DEIA efforts.

OIG Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee
The Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Committee focuses on increasing awareness of DEIA in the workplace. The committee is composed of staff from all OIG units and works with OIG staff at all levels—from entry level to senior leadership—to develop and share information on trainings and training opportunities, promote awareness of our nation’s many, rich, and diverse cultures, and host informative and engaging events celebrating these cultures, experiences, interests, and outlooks.
CIGIE DEIA Committee
The OIG is active in the CIGIE DEIA Committee: Inspector General Bruce serves as chair of the committee, and OIG staff are engaged in and contribute to the committees’s efforts. The CIGIE DEIA Committee is composed of inspectors general from more than 45 Federal agencies. It looks to affirm, advance, and augment CIGIE’s commitment to promote a diverse, equitable, and inclusive workforce and workplace environment throughout the OIG community that will help ensure comprehensive work, produced by a well-trained and highly skilled workforce, to be made accessible, when possible, to the diverse public we serve.
