The Office of Economic Impact and Diversity (ED) mission is to identify and implement ways of ensuring that everyone is afforded an opportunity to participate fully in the DOE's programs, opportunities, and resources. ED’s work will be driven by 4 key focus areas: 

  • We encourage partnerships with Minority Serving Institutions and other minority-owned and serving entities to join us in our mission-critical work. 
  • We seek to increase contracting opportunities for small and disadvantaged businesses by establishing goals, putting together smart policy, and developing programs to increase the support going to small businesses through government contracts. 
  • We assure equal opportunity for minorities, women, persons with disabilities, people with limited English proficiency, and develop and administer Departmental policies, practices, and procedures under certain laws and titles. 
  • We work to create and sustain a high-performing, inclusive workforce by leveraging diversity and empowering all employees to achieve superior results in the service of our Nation.
