The Office of Equity is relational in our work and centers community at every opportunity. 

Represent your community by volunteering with a Commission. 

Build your community by participating in any business resource group for State employees.


Commissions are designed to give Washingtonians a voice in their government and allow community members to influence decisions that shape the quality of life for the residents of our state. Participation on a board or commission is one of the most effective steps community members can take in becoming an active voice in their government.

Business Resource Groups

Statewide business resource groups (BRGs) bring together groups of employees and their allies who have a common interest or characteristic. Participation in any BRG open to all state employees and considered a leadership priority and opportunity. BRG members also bring their unique knowledge and perspectives, making them an asset to the State.
