NOS Equal Employment Opportunity and Diversity Programs

The NOAA Ocean Service (NOS) supports the policy of the U.S. Department of Commerce and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, which provides for equal employment opportunity (EEO) to all persons without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, physical or mental disability.

Equal Employment Opportunity and Diversity Program Mission Statement

The National Ocean Service (NOS) is committed to equal opportunity and appreciation of diversity through policies, programs and activities that promote sensitivity and accommodations for all people. Equal opportunity in employment means opportunity not just for some but for all.  NOS provides equal opportunity in Federal employment regardless of race, color, gender, national origin, religion, age, disability, and sexual orientation.  Diversity is integral to mission goals at NOS and we will use diversity as a model for helping to identify and develop the best talent, create effective teams, and achieve excellence.
