Fun and games for all

Diversity has always been among the Florida Lottery's core values. The Florida Lottery is committed to creating a welcoming, inclusive atmosphere for all players, employees, vendors, retailers, and other lottery connections. From our staff to our marketing to our education initiatives, we are proud to support the diversity that makes Florida a rich and beautiful place to call home.

Hiring and Retail Partnerships

Eradicating hiring bias and connecting with retail partners of all races, ages, genders, religions and ethnicities expands business potential for the Florida Lottery and, in turn, increases our ability to give back to education. All Florida Lottery offices adhere to strict bias-free hiring practices, and retail partnership opportunities are open to all.

Vendor Diversity

The Florida Lottery shares the enthusiasm and spirit of the Governor's Office and its commitment to the minority, women-owned and veteran business community of the State of Florida. We regularly conduct outreach initiatives to ensure full and vibrant participation of diverse businesses in the economic life of the State of Florida, including: 

  • Implementing creative contracting strategies to promote increased minority business participation in subcontracting opportunities
  • Consulting frequently with the Office of Supplier Diversity (OSD) to develop and implement strategies to increase the participation of minority businesses in the Lottery's procurement system
  • Sponsoring and participating in "matchmaking conferences" and other events where minority and service-disabled veteran businesses showcase their offered commodities and/or services

Items the Florida Lottery routinely purchases, which readily afford minority business participation in the quoting process, include, but are not limited to:

  • Architectural Services
  • Pest Control Services
  • Promotional Items & Awards
  • Construction/Renovation Services
  • Management Consultative Services

  • Custodial & Janitorial Services
  • Information Technology Services & Supplies
  • Educational Supplies
  • Repairs & Maintenance
  • Office Supplies

If you are a minority, women-owned or veteran business enterprise providing any of the commodities and/or services listed above, or feel you offer other commodities and/or services which would prove beneficial to the Lottery, email the Procurement Management Office at:


The Florida Lottery encourages diversity wherever possible in all marketing and advertising materials. Auditory marketing is translated into Spanish and Creole, while visual advertising depicts lottery players of all ages and ethnicities (18 or over, of course!). Florida is a vibrant, multicultural state, and the Florida Lottery is committed to conveying these diverse demographics wherever possible.

Education Initiatives

The Florida Lottery regularly hosts events and promotions in communities across the state to spread awareness of the Bright Futures Scholarship Program and the Florida Lottery’s overall contributions to education. We’re on a mission to ensure that all Florida students, regardless of income, location, or ethnicity, are aware of the financial resources that can enable access to higher education. A bright future for all our students means a bright future for Florida.
