DNC staff must reflect the diversity of America, with an intentional hiring process that creates a diverse applicant pool and candidate selection. The DNC should also value staff with a record of success in state and local parties in particular.

Where possible, the DNC should hire internally, rather than hire vendors or consultants, to build Party knowledge and infrastructure.

We will work to expeditiously place strategic DNC staff across the country to allow more interaction between staff and our candidates and party infrastructure.

We are committed to working with the Vice Chairs, DNC members and caucus chairs and our state party chairs and vice chairs to seek qualified applicants for critical positions and constituency caucuses.
