Do you want to be a part of a diverse team that is making a difference? Do you want to be a part of a dynamic organization? 

The Washington State Attorney General's Office invites you to consider the opportunities for meaningful careers provided by the largest public law office in the state of Washington. There are twenty-five AGO legal divisions providing all of the legal services for the state of Washington's agencies, boards, commissions, public colleges and universities, including litigation, legal advice and appellate work on matters of individual and cumulative importance to the citizens of this state. This is work that makes a difference to the people of Washington every day and inherently provides the career satisfaction that one seeks from public sector work.

The Attorney General's Office respects and encourages diversity in the work force.  In fact, diversity, equity and inclusion are absolutely critical to the success of the AGO.  The AGO is committed to creating a positive work environment that recognizes employees as its most valuable resource.  Our core values are served by strongly promoting inclusion and equity throughout the organization, while embracing the individual differences of our employees and clients. The AGO also recognizes that diverse perspectives and backgrounds result in better information and decision-making, further building public trust.  Accordingly, it is paramount for AGO staff to appreciate, value and implement principles of diversity, cultural competency, equity and inclusion, while performing our duties at work and at work functions. 

One recent measure of the AGO's commitment to diversity can be found in its nomination for Rainbow Alliance and Inclusion Network's "Outstanding Agency Award" in 2019.
