The Environmental Protection Agency will begin collecting sexual orientation and gender identity information on its employees this fall, according to an internal email.

The email sent last week by EPA Chief of Staff Matt Fritz announced a “ground-breaking” pilot program that will allow employees to answer survey questions about their sexuality.

“A professional, productive, and inclusive workplace is essential to our mission of protecting human health and the environment,” Fritz wrote. “Today EPA is taking a crucial step forward and playing a leadership role for the federal government in equal employment opportunity and diversity and inclusion by piloting the collection of voluntary, self-disclosed sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) workforce data.”
