The U.S. Postal Service has grown more diverse in recent years and is “one of the most diverse workforces in the nation,” according to a new watchdog report, though its management is still disproportionately comprised of white employees.

A slight majority of USPS workers are of historically disadvantaged races or ethnicities, the Government Accountability Office found in its review, significantly exceeding the federal workforce writ large. From 2016 to 2022, Black employees went from 25% to 30% of the postal workforce and Latino employees went from 10% to 13%. That compared to 19% and 9% in the larger federal workforce in 2022, respectively.
