Who We Are

The Office of Equal Opportunity embraces diversity and inclusion in a serious way. We strive to ensure our office is representative of the people we are privileged to serve. We are committed to building a team with a variety of backgrounds, skills and views where difference is valued. We believe diversity drives innovation and the more inclusive we are, the better our work will be. Creating a culture of diversity and inclusion isn’t just the right thing to do, it’s also the smart thing for all of Missouri.

What We Do

The Workforce Diversity Program enhances the engagement and productivity of state employees by working to recruit diverse talent and cultivate a culture of inclusion within our organization.

The Supplier Diversity Program seeks to enhance the state’s economy by increasing the utilization of Minority, Woman, and Service-Disabled Veteran-owned business participation on state contracts. 

We help to connect certified Minority, Woman, and Service-Disabled Veteran-owned business members with various procurement opportunities across state government.

We engage with other partners and stakeholders to better connect our customers with access to information, resources, and capital that will lead to increased diversity and inclusion within our workforce and marketplace.
