Diversity and Inclusion

Having a diverse, highly professional, motivated, and multidisciplinary staff helps GAO fulfill its mission to support Congress. It also helps improve the performance and accountability of government for the benefit of the American people. Each person’s skills, talents, experiences, and characteristics broaden the range of perspectives in and approaches to GAO’s work. All employees play a role in supporting a diverse workforce and an inclusive work environment by demonstrating respect for each other and acting with integrity in every aspect of daily workplace experiences.
