An EEO designee or Civil Rights Compliance Officer is appointed in each State Executive Branch department. These designees work with the EEO Office to help assure equity, opportunity, and diversity within the department. State employees should feel free to contact their departmental EEO designee or the EEO Office with any EEO-related concerns.
The State of Hawaii is committed to diversity and inclusion in the workplace and provides equal opportunity in employment. As an employer, the State strives to promote and maintain a workplace free of protected class discrimination, including harassment, and retaliation, meaning all employees and applicants for State employment receive fair and equitable treatment regardless of their protected class. The State works proactively to identify and prevent protected class discrimination or harassment without regard to its severity or pervasiveness and does not require that discrimination or harassment rise to the level of unlawfulness before taking action.
Let’s work together to ensure an inclusive and equitable work environment!
