Our Working Groups

Sexual Harassment and Misconduct

Leadership and advancement
Advocates for diversity in leadership positions and management roles throughout the Department by hosting brown bag lunches, administering a leadership program, and collecting data on the current number of women in leadership roles.
Promotes intersectionality within DOJ GEN, advocates for greater training on gender-based implicit bias, and creates resources for easier access to reproductive health services for government employees.
Leave Issues and Workplace Flexibility
Surveys DOJ components to compare leave and flexible work option policies in order to analyze the results and advocate for better policies Department-wide.
Recruitment and Retention
