A Message from Dr. Corbett

Dr. Jessilene E. Corbett

“As our nation and State become more diverse, we must reflect this diversity in our places of work. Our commitment to inclusion means that we will consistently work toward reviewing our policies, practices, and procedures to remove any barriers that inhibit our ability to maintain a fair and safe work environment where everyone feels valued and respected, all employees can be themselves, and help the State achieve its business objectives.”
