No matter what type of employment you’re seeking there’s a place for you at DOE.

OUR PEOPLE, OUR DIVERSITY
At DOE, we believe the vibrancy of the Department’s culture depends on the varied backgrounds of its personnel that are inclusive of women, minorities, veterans and persons with disabilities, and also recognize that embracing diversity in all aspects of our operations is crucial to achieving our mission. For this reason, we form partnerships with programs and educational community groups to provide training, opportunities and professional growth, and increase participation of women and girls in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics Fields (STEM). We also guide and assist historically underrepresented communities to learn how to work with the Department, while ensuring everyone is a part of the decision-making process at the DOE.
As we continue our mission, our DOE Council on Women and Girls (CWG) works to create programs that improves and enhances work/life balance of women DOE employees and their families. DOE strives to ensure equal access of opportunities for women-owned businesses in the energy sector and works collaboratively with other federal agencies to raise awareness, promote and provide opportunities for the professional growth of women in the Science fields.
