Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Initiative

We believe that advancing excellence in government finance is interconnected with our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI). Our members shape the policies, programs, and resource allocations in their communities, and we are strengthened by the differences they represent. GFOA’s DEI Initiative outlines the actions being taken to uphold the principles of DEI as stated in GFOA’s Code of Ethics.

DEI Commitment Statement

We value diversity and strive to create an environment where each community, colleague, and member feels welcomed, respected, valued, and a sense of belonging in our network, and is equipped to instill the principles of diversity, equity and inclusion into their workplaces and policies.

Together, we aspire to establish trust in government through public service that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive to build strong and healthy communities.
