IETA Cohort of 2022-2023
Demographics of the 2022-2023 Cohort
40% of finalists are from HHS agencies other than CDC
68% of finalists are from racial or ethnic minority groups
86% of finalists are cisgender females
We extended 30 offers to join the 2022-2023 cohort. We invited each finalist to complete an anonymous and optional demographic survey, modeled after the annual HHS Demographic survey. We are sharing select demographics from the finalist survey. Over two-thirds of the finalists are from racial or ethnic minority groups. Forty percent of the finalists are from outside of CDC. The finalist cohort includes a range of GS-levels from GS-11 to GS-15. Note: The final IETA cohort for 2022-2023 pictured below includes four participants from the 2019-2020 IETA cohort who are completing the program now due to COVID delays.
In the demographic survey, we also asked about sexual identity and disability status. Data about the sexual identity and the disability status of the IETA finalists involves a small numerator and a small denominator, so we do not provide those percentages.
These data are our baseline data. We will continue to monitor all of these demographic categories for each cohort going forward for the purpose of identifying disparities in the representation of various demographic groups.
