    GAO Report to Congress (June 2020, GAO-20-477): USAID — Mixed Progress in Increasing Diversity, and Actions Needed to Consistently Meet EEO Requirements. In its study issued in June of 2020, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) found that the overall proportion of racial or ethnic minorities in the U.S. Agency for International Development’s (USAID) full-time, permanent, career workforce increased from 33 to 37 percent from fiscal year 2002 to fiscal year 2018. The direction of change for specific groups varied. For instance, the proportion of Hispanics rose from 3 to 6 percent, while the proportion of African Americans fell from 26 to 21 percent. The proportions of racial or ethnic minorities were generally smaller in higher ranks. During this period, the overall proportion of women increased from 51 to 54 percent, reflecting their growing proportion in USAID’s Foreign Service.
