Suffolk County District Attorney Daniel F. Conley is dedicated to promoting diversity in the hiring of his staff. To that end, DA Conley encourages the input of the office’s Diversity Committee, comprised of six employees who volunteer to be on the committee.
The goal of the Diversity Committee is to foster an inclusive workplace where every staff member feels accepted and respected. The district attorney encourages all staff members to work towards this goal and to benefit from multicultural events in the office and the community. The Diversity Committee raises awareness of how an individual’s words and actions can affect other staff members and the group as a whole, with the goal of encouraging positive interactions.
The Diversity Committee also serves as a confidential resource for staff members with concerns relating to discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity, gender, religion or sexual orientation, as well as complaints of sexual harassment.
