Office of Equity


Gov. Jay Inslee named Karen Johnson director of the newly created state Office of Equity. The Office of Equity, established by the Legislature, was signed into law by Inslee in April of 2020. The office will work with agencies to increase access to equitable opportunities in order to bridge opportunity gaps and reduce disparities. The office will also work with communities to develop the state's five-year equity plan. Johnson is currently the equity and inclusion administrator for the Washington State Department of Corrections. She also represents DOC on the statewide Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Council.
