Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Initiative

GFOA's DEI Initiative is designed to advance excellence in the government finance profession by upholding the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) as stated in GFOA’s Code of Ethics.

DEI Commitment Statement

We believe that advancing excellence in government finance is interconnected with our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion. Our members shape the policies, programs, and resource allocations in their communities, and we are strengthened by the differences they represent. We value these differences and strive to create an environment where each community, colleague, and member feels respected 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 within every community trust in government through public service that is diverse, equitable, and inclusive.
