The Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) submits annual Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Assurances to meet U.S. Department of Transportation requirements and to support WSDOT management with accountability measurements. Beyond compliance, EEO and Affirmative Action programs provide the benefits of a diverse workforce that enables WSDOT to best serve Washington communities.

This report provides a detailed overview on the status of internal civil rights programming at WSDOT. WSDOT continues to develop a comprehensive diversity program that will ensure compliance, improve utilization of under-represented groups, educate staff and managers on diversity endeavors and create community partnerships. The WSDOT Office of Human Resources and Safety (OHR&S) has the responsibility to oversee the program, provide consultation to managers and staff and assist WSDOT in meeting, and ultimately exceeding, compliance standards.
