Diversity In Action

Ensuring that the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office is as diverse as the communities it serves remains one of the Office’s top priorities.  The Office is firmly committed to a policy against discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, marital or veteran status, or sexual orientation. In the interest of maintaining a high standard of diversity, the Office proactively explores opportunities to attract talented individuals from a variety of backgrounds.

Special Message from State’s Attorney Alvarez

I am pleased that the Cook County State’s Attorney’s Office is a reflection of the people that it serves. I have made diversity a major priority because as a minority female prosecutor, I value the contributions that minorities have made to the Office and profession. The Office’s commitment to diversity is one of its greatest strengths. In the interest of securing justice for the people of Cook County, the Office, through various recruitment and retention programs, has sought out and retained some of the best legal talent locally, statewide and nationally.
