Amtrak releases fourth annual diversity report


Amtrak has released its 2023 Annual Diversity Report, which reviews the railroad's progress against annual and long-term goals and outlines future initiatives for fiscal-year 2024.

The report highlights the company's diversity efforts with its workforce, the workplace and the community. It also features the "Amtrak Diversity in Action" pledge that challenges everyone at Amtrak to take action by supporting inclusive environments, learn by taking unconscious bias training and engage with each other, resources and leaders.

"Each of us brings a different life experience. We are stronger when those voices are heard," said Amtrak Executive Vice President and Chief Human Resources Officer, Robert Grasty in a news release. "As we see results — in the diversity of our new hires, in our retention of employees and the growth of diverse representation in our workforce — we continue to evolve."

The report shows Amtrak’s workforce of 22,658 people includes over 12,500 diverse employees and notes progress in the candidate-to-job offer pipeline that has led to more offers and acceptance from diverse candidates. Amtrak also exceeded a goal with 55% of promotions that include diverse talent in FY23.
