At the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP), we are firmly committed to equity, inclusion, and full compliance with state and federal laws and policies regarding equal employment opportunity and affirmative action. We recognize that equal employment opportunity is a legal, organizational, and economic necessity in order to maximize the quality and diversity of the State's workforce. We strive to have an agency culture that is free of bias, promotes equity, and actively engages inclusion. This commitment extends to all job applicants and employees in every type of position.

On November 12, 2019, Governor Tony Evers issued Executive Order #59. This order affirmed the importance of equity and inclusion in Wisconsin state government, and directed all state agencies to develop an equity and inclusion action plan. Read DATCP's Equity and Inclusion Plan​.
