Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
DOC Careers

"It is known that diversity, equity and inclusion help drive performance, productivity, and mission success. The Department of Corrections is developing a strategic plan along with our CORE initiative that will help create an organizational culture that respects and values diversity. This plan recognizes that diversity and inclusion are critical to the Department’s continued success.

The Department of Corrections is committed to helping our staff achieve their full potential. It is through our staff that we are able to provide the citizens of Oregon the highest levels of customer service.

Our goal is to create a climate of inclusion where mutual respect and understanding enable collaboration and problem solving for staff at all levels and where ​individuals are valued for their unique contributions. I envision our workforce populated by skilled and dedicated staff members who reflect all the best characteristics of Oregon’s talented and diverse population."

Colette Peters, ODOC Director


"The Oregon Department of Corrections continues to develop strategies that further support diversity, equity and inclusion practices within our agency. I look forward in my role as Deputy Director to help facilitate finding avenues to promote a work environment that recognizes and respects a workforce that is diverse in nature, and whose individual differences, life experiences and culture provides a pathway to mold into a cohesive workforce that allows us to perform at the highest level of professionalism and efficiencies as we fulfill our agency’s mission.”

Brian Belleque, ODOC Deputy Director
