 The State Department released on Wednesday its plan to embed “equity” into all aspects of the foreign policy making process, claiming that “inequity is a national security challenge with global consequences.” 

The report was released as part of an update to the Biden administration’s initiative to push diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) policies at all levels of the federal government. These efforts include funding for foreign LGBT groups and pushing DEI into all aspects of the State Department’s policy making process.

“Over the past two years, we increased our efforts to embed equity in our foreign affairs work through diplomatic engagements, high-level dialogues, multilateral efforts, foreign assistance, public diplomacy programs and messaging, and procurement and contracts,” the report said. “These efforts have raised the visibility of racial and other inequities globally and generated better-informed foreign policy to decrease barriers to equity and equality worldwide.”

The report comes as some Republicans have attempted to prevent the federal government from pushing DEI, saying that those efforts focus on race and sexual identity over competency.

Principles advocated by the State Department include efforts to “combat hate and protect inclusive democracy,” pushing “racial equity and justice globally,” and advancing “gender equity and equality globally.”

The report highlighted several projects prompted by the department’s focus on equity, including: a podcast put out by the U.S. Mission to NATO on women in international security, the Embassy in Kyiv pushing access to an HIV pre-exposure drug, the Embassy Kingston “forging links” with Jamaican law enforcement and LGBT people, and the U.S. Mission to Poland helping coordinate on LGBTQI+ issues as ally embassies to combat hate and promote an inclusive environment.”


Future projects the State Department said it was pursuing included incorporating “intersectional equity” into public diplomacy programs and activities, funding for LGBT advocacy groups, and making American passport artwork “a better representation of our country’s broad diversity.”

The report said that “increased immigration, global warming, and the COVID-19 pandemic” all made racism “more – not less – virulent.”

The State Department has previously been criticized over its identity-focused efforts, including allocating nearly $50,000 in taxpayer funds to push for transgender inclusion policies in Indian corporations.

The Daily Wire previously reported that the State Department was set to provide $49,813 to an Indian organization called the YR Gaitonde Medical, Educational and Research Foundation, which seeks to normalize transgenderism in workplaces.
