The Internal Revenue Service.

The Internal Revenue Service, Criminal Investigation (CI) division is striving to be a model employer. Our goal is to build and maintain a diverse work force; one that reflects the communities in which we serve. We realize that to be a leading law enforcement agency in the 21st century, we must fully embrace the diversity that exists among the citizens of America, and strive to replicate that diversity among our own workforce.

IRS Criminal Investigation special agents investigate complex financial crimes including tax evasion, money laundering and other related financial crimes. "The kind of service that we provide the American public requires us to connect with all aspects of diversity. Each culture brings unique views and unique methods of problem solving. We realize that we cannot effectively accomplish our mission with a work force that only represents one culture," Says Michele Hamilton, Director, EEO and Diversity, for CI. Hamilton is the first to hold this new senior level position within CI, that is dedicated to promoting diversity. Criminal investigation is pioneering a new way of thinking, and has made a proactive commitment to valuing diversity. The CI Diversity Council is a shining example of this commitment. The council, which is made up of Black, White, Hispanic, Asian, male and female CI employees, will provide a voice for employees to address diversity-related concerns, and improve the quality of their worklife. In addition to these innovative changes, CI is partnering with various historically black colleges and universities, and Hispanic universities, to offer students the opportunity for employment with CI through the student career intern program.
