The New York State Unified Court System's Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) has a long-standing commitment to equal employment opportunity, the elimination of under-representation of minorities and women, and to ensuring a diverse workforce that reflects the community.
Diversity contributes to the myriad perspectives, approaches, talents and aspirations court employees bring to their work. Considerations of diversity may include nationality, ethnicity, race, gender identity or expression and other aspects of background and identity, such as: age, religion, geography, family status, sexual orientation, or physical and mental ability. Some of our differences are unique to us as individuals, while others connect us to groups of people; the strength of diversity is realized by valuing all of these differences.
It is the objective of the ODI to ensure an atmosphere that is conducive to the highest quality of work, through a workplace where all people feel comfortable, valued and productive.
