The Hill Covers Joint Center Analysis on Senate Democrats Staff Diversity

The Hill covered the Joint Center’s analysis of the Senate Democrats’ staff diversity that ranks the offices for most and least diverse, and improved in diversity from last year’s data.

As The Hill notes, “Racial diversity for staff in the office of Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey (D) went up 12 percentage points between 2022 and 2023, according to the analysis. California Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s (D) office improved by ten percentage points, and Hawaii’s Schatz’s office improved by eight percentage points. Racial diversity for staff in the offices of Washington’s Murray went down 16 percentage points from last year, according to the Joint Center. The offices of Delaware Sen. Tom Carper (D) and Georgia’s Warnock went down 13 points each in racial diversity. Warnock’s fellow Georgia senator Ossoff also saw his office go down 8 points in racial diversity — despite the pair still leading the chamber in the percentage of Black staff members in their offices.”
