President Biden’s recent Executive Order 14035 initiated a wide-ranging plan to improve diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility (DEIA) in the Federal government, with a goal to create a workforce that “looks more like America” and represents people from all segments of society. This new effort tasks the Office of Personnel Management, Office of Management and Budget, and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission with key roles in the development of a more diverse representation in not only the Federal workforce in general, but also in senior leadership positions.
Agencies were given 100 days to assess the impact of their own practices, policies, and procedures on DEIA.
Join Attorney at Law Meghan Droste and Marcus Hill, former Senior Executive Advisor at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center and current board member of the Senior Executives Association, as they discuss the details of the Executive Order and share guidance on what you can do to set and meet your agency’s DEIA goals. They will also share the key provisions of President Biden’s two previous DEIA-related Executive Orders, highlight the interaction among all three EOs, and detail the steps your agency can take to ensure equity for all employees.
Attend this 90-minute town hall discussion for answers to questions, such as:
- How do you more efficiently recruit and hire a workplace that “looks more like America”?
- What current hiring practices are actually roadblocks to efforts for a more diverse workplace?
- What workplace protections do LGBTQ employees have?
- Why are people of color and individuals with disabilities not fairly represented in agency leadership roles?
- What groups are considered underserved populations?
- What steps can you actually take to improve representation of underserved populations?
- What exact roles do OPM, OMB and EEOC play?
- What is your agency expected to produce in 100 days?
- What is the likely future of this initiative after those 100 days are up?
