Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion


The State of Colorado believes that equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) drive our success, and encourage candidates from all identities, backgrounds, and abilities to apply.

Therefore, in all aspects of the employment process, the State of Colorado provides employment opportunities to all qualified applicants without regard to race, color, religion, sex, disability, age, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, pregnancy, medical condition related to pregnancy, creed, ancestry, national origin, marital status, genetic information, or military status (with preference given to military veterans), or any other protected status in accordance with applicable law.

Applicants have rights under Federal Employment laws including the Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) and the Employee Polygraph Protection Act (EPPA). Please refer to the mandatory posters at the Colorado Department of Labor and Employment.

I am curious about what EDI means to the State of Colorado…


The State of Colorado believes that an equitable, diverse, and inclusive workplace is one where all employees and community partners, whatever their gender, race, ethnicity, religion, national origin, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, citizenship status, education, disability, socio-economic status, or any other identity, feel valued and respected. 

As an employer, the State is committed to nondiscriminatory practices and providing equitable opportunities for employment and advancement in all of our departments, programs, services, and worksites. 

Through policy, legislative priorities, and executive action, the State of Colorado and all agencies across the state will create a Colorado For All.

We have a toolkit that provides tools and resources to help all people throughout all levels of state government bring an equity mindset to their systems, policies, and everyday work as public servants.
