Pelosi Announces Staff Diversity Initiative

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi announced this week that the Democratic Caucus will be implementing steps toward increasing staff diversity within its offices.

Pelosi’s new initiative, composed of two major parts, will include a full-time dedicated staffer and focus on increasing House Democratic workforce diversity and expanding opportunities for diverse candidates at all House staff levels.

As part of that effort, the initiative will maintain a database of highly qualified individuals for positions at all levels and aid in building relationships with outside organizations and institutions to recruit diverse candidates for House employment.

“The Joint Center commends Leader Pelosi for her leadership in this important space,” said Spencer Overton, president of the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies. “The House of Representatives must be a chamber that reflects the diversity we see across the country and in the respective Congressional districts members serve. The Joint Center remains committed to increasing diversity among House staffers, and we look forward to working with Democratic and Republican offices to identify strong candidates of color for vacancies.”
