Promoting equitable access to opportunities and resources across Washington
Our legislative and rulemaking priorities, policy recommendations, and consultation with state agencies focuses on co-creating a seamless, integrated, world-class, equitable and just public service delivery system where a team of actively engaged public servants bring their whole self a to work to provide a superior customer experience to Washingtonians seeking assistance. We will partner with others to decrease inequities in employment and contracting, improve access to state services, and surpass accessibility (language, physical, technological/internet) requirements across state government.
