LADWP embraces diversity, supports wellness and offers employees an avenue to live out their values in the workplace. The event aligns with the Department’s goal to help narrow the nation’s gender and racial pay gaps by improving access to employment pathways, promoting the benefits of civil service and union representation, high-quality jobs, and connecting high school students, particularly underrepresented female students, with career paths in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math).
