Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility (DEIA)

Diversity  |  Equity  |  Inclusion  |  Accessibility

At the FAA, people are our strength. We are stronger, more innovative, and more successful when a diversity of talents and experiences are at the table. Our continuing mission is to provide the safest, most efficient aerospace system in the world. It only makes sense that the workforce responsible for that mission reflects the nation that it serves. 

Our diversity and inclusion vision is to create opportunities that garner the talents of a diverse, multi-level workforce that contributes to the continuous development of superior innovation, technological advancements, and excellence in global aviation.

Our goal is to maintain our position as an premier agency, and ensure the workforce is reflective of the diverse Nation we serve. We will accomplish that goal through diligent efforts to attract, hire, promote, and retain the finest and most capable candidates.
