City of Portland Diversity Development Strategic Initiative
OBJECTIVE: Management models a positive attitude regarding diversity in general, and multi-culturalism in particular, by action and participation in the development of standards of acceptable staff behavior.
Require all staff to attend city-sponsored training and require additional training for supervisors as necessary.
Provide time and resources for staff to participate in diversity training and multicultural events.
Time (time = money) and resources (resources = literal money) for diversity indoctrination. Remember, the new tax is for the kids...
OBJECTIVE: At this stage, the goal should be “institutionalized diversity
development” and “enthusiastic multi-culturalism.” Failure to embrace these issues
and to be an active participant should not be tolerated by the City at a management
Everything is tolerated except failure to embrace “enthusiastic multi-culturalism.”
Directors hold managers and supervisory personnel accountable for hiring, promoting and maintaining a diverse workforce through performance evaluations.
This means that minorities and women get better performance reviews.
You can read the rest of this nonsense if you want to scare yourself, you get the idea from these highlights.
