 Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion

The Department provides equal opportunities to job applicants and its employees regardless of race, sexual orientation, age, pregnancy, religion, creed, color, national origin, ancestry, physical or mental disability, marital, veteran status, or sex. The Department does not discriminate or show partiality or grant any special favors to applicants, employees, or groups of employees based on any of these factors or statutes, unless expressly required by law.

We partner with the Governor’s Equity Office to maintain a diverse and inclusive environment. This includes, but is not limited to; ensuring OSP strives to be culturally competent, embraces equality and addresses the agency’s commitment to protect the people, property, and natural resources of the state. We recognize the legitimacy of our authority is provided by the citizens we serve, so we embrace the desire for community trust.

Our workforce is the most valuable asset we have. The collective sum of the individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, inventiveness, innovation, self-expression, unique capabilities and talent that our employees invest in their work represents a significant part of not only our culture, but our reputation and agency’s achievement as well.  It is vitally important the OSP continue to establish collective goals, while nourishing and celebrating individual contributions.
