Diversity Initiatives

The CIA is dedicated to building a world-class, high-performing and diverse workforce that allows us to meet the increasing threats and challenges to our nation.

Our Diversity and Inclusion staff is always hard at work running programs designed to encourage professional development at all levels – ensuring every officer’s views are heard and that their ideas and skills are given due consideration. These programs include:

  • SPOTLIGHT: A series of facilitated conversations focused on challenging diversity and inclusion topics
  • Reverse mentoring: A program where junior employees with 5 years or less of Agency experience serve as mentors to employees with 15+ years of experience
  • A cross-directorate group mentoring initiative
  • A monthly series of “lunch and learn” workshops
  • An array of diversity training to enhance skills necessary to manage and function in a diverse workforce

A Place to Connect and Engage

The CIA works hard to create a positive and inclusive workplace where employees with different backgrounds, cultures and talents are respected and given the opportunity to succeed. We have a variety of employee resource groups composed of employees who share a common affinity (gender, sexual orientation, disability, ethnic and racial background) and their allies. The ARGs make our organization stronger by:

  • Increasing cultural awareness
  • Providing insight, practical solutions and best practices
  • Promoting engagement and collaboration

The ARGs are critical to the present and future effectiveness of the CIA through their support and advancement of diversity and inclusion. Our Agency Resource Groups include:

  • Agency Network of Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, and Transgender Officers and Allies (ANGLE)
  • American Veterans Employee Resource Group (AVERG)
  • Asian Pacific American Organization (APAO)
