- Diversity at DFC
DFC strives to ensure that its workforce is diverse, inclusive, and representative of the populations it serves. DFC ensures that Diversity and Inclusion and Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) principles govern all aspects of personnel policies, program practices and operations to successfully attract and retain a diverse workforce. All phases of employment—recruitment, hiring, evaluation, promotion, transfer, assignment, training, benefits and separation—are conducted in compliance with EEO laws and regulations. Moreover, DFC strives for a harassment-free workplace.
Statement on Equal Employment Opportunity, Equal Pay for Equivalent Work, and Nondiscriminatory Practices
DFC is an equal opportunity employer, meaning it provides equal employment opportunities to all employees and applicants and prohibits discrimination and harassment of any type without regard to race, color, religion, age, sex, national origin, disability status, genetics, protected veteran status, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, or any other characteristic protected by federal, state, or local laws. Additionally, DFC provides equal pay for equivalent work regardless of gender.
This policy applies to all terms and conditions of employment, including recruitment, hiring, placements, promotions, terminations, layoffs, recalls, transfers, leaves of absence, compensation, and training/professional development.
Under 29 C.F.R. §1614.203(e), federal agencies must report to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission their affirmative action plan for persons with disabilities and persons with targeted disabilities, and describe how their plan will improve the recruitment, hiring, advancement, and retention of these individuals.
Compliance with Federal Legislation and Presidential Executive Orders
Adherence to EEO principles and practices will enable DFC to comply with the following Executive Orders and federal statutes:
- E.O. 13171 Hispanic Employment in the Federal Government
- E.O. 13583 Establishing a Coordinated Government-wide Initiative to Promote Diversity and Inclusion in the Federal Workforce
Additionally, implementation of diversity and inclusion principles will help to ensure a more substantive and robust response to the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and employee and public inquiries into DFC employment, engagement/retention, diversity and inclusion practices and EEO compliance.

- Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF)
On Oct. 6, 2021, the U.S. Department of Education (ED) announced a change to the Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF) program rules as a result of the COVID-19 national emergency. Millions of non-profit and government employees have federal student loans and may now be eligible for loan forgiveness or additional credit through the Limited PSLF Waiver. For a limited period of time—through October 31, 2022—federal student loan borrowers may receive credit for past periods of repayment that would otherwise not qualify for PSLF.
The DFC Office of Human Resources Management (OHRM) has established an efficient and centralized process to receive and process PSLF Forms. For the most up-to-date information on the waiver, please visit StudentAid.gov/PSLFwaiver.
