What is different now, along with the higher number of resignations, is the reason why diplomats are leaving. In recent years, the State Department has actually made some progress in addressing the employment and diversity concerns, hiring more spouses at overseas posts and recruiting more minorities. Since 2012, it has scored either third or fourth in the annual ranking of the best places to work in the federal government by the Partnership for Public Service. According to the 2017 results, released last month, it has fallen to eighth place, its score having dropped more than that of any other agency.
