There’s Not One Woman in a Top-Management Position in Seven of the DOJ’s Divisions

According to the Department of Justice Gender Equality Network, there isn’t a single woman in a top-management position in seven of its divisions. Not good. Taking matters into their own hands, the network sent a letter to 50 senior leaders in the DOJ asking them to explain why women aren’t represented in top-leadership positions. The letter explains why gender diversity is crucial for the next rounds of hiring and promoting, calling on each division leader to discuss, "what [they] have done or plan to do to address the lack of women in top-level leadership positions in [their] respective offices." These statistics come following a department report released in June revealing an overwhelming male majority across four essential federal law enforcement groups. The report also found "concerning" levels of gender discrimination and harassment. It’s time for a change.
