Persons with Disabilities
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
Persons with Disabilities
We’re committed to providing an inclusive environment for persons with disabilities and to making the FBI an accessible workplace.
Persons with disabilities bring persistence, problem solving ability, creativity, and adaptability to the table. These skills, paired with their unique perspectives, make persons with disabilities invaluable assets to the FBI’s mission. We actively recruit persons with disabilities for all roles within the FBI.
"My motto has always been ‘don’t dwell on what you can’t do but focus on what you can do.’ I think every person with a disability just wants to be treated normally by other people and respected for what we can offer."
Forensic Accountant Kyle

The FBI provides legally entitled reasonable accommodations to qualified job applicants with disabilities. If you need a reasonable accommodation for any part of the application and/or hiring process, please notify the Office of Equal Employment Opportunity Affairs (OEEOA) Reasonable Accommodation Program. For more information, visit the FBI’s accessibility page.
A reasonable accommodation based on a medical condition is any change in the work environment (or in the manner in which work is performed) to enable a qualified employee with a disability to enjoy equal employment opportunities and/or perform the essential functions of the job. Please see the individual job listing for more information on how to request a reasonable accommodation for a specific position.
"Being inclusive isn’t just something we should do; it’s something we must do. We know we can only stay ahead of the ever-evolving threats we face when everyone is part of our mission."
FBI Director Christopher Wray
