Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action

TriMet upholds the following fundamental values: do the right thing and be responsive, inclusive and accountable. We strive to maintain a diverse workforce that reflects the community we serve, in all areas and at all levels throughout our organization.

Equal opportunity for employment

TriMet strives to assure its workforce of nearly 3,000 employees reflects the cultural and ethnic breadth and diversity of the Portland community. TriMet’s hiring practices assure equal treatment and consideration for all individuals, regardless of race, color, creed, national origin, religion, sex, disability, age, protected veteran status, or other status protected by law.

Affirmative action

The agency has voluntarily undertaken an affirmative action program, including setting goals, in order to overcome the effects of past societal discrimination on minorities and women.
