The Biden Administration is reportedly working on a “national” strategy to impose diversity on America. And it reportedly intends to start by ensuring that the the federal government is as diverse and inclusive as possible.
The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) held the inaugural meeting of the Chief Diversity Officers Executive Council, a group comprised of diversity officers from other federal departments, last week.
The council will attempt to “implement and sustain” a government-wide plan to encourage diversity, equality, inclusion, and accessibility (DEIA) policies in government recruiting and employment.
Dr. Janice Underwood, director of OPM’s Office of Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility, chairs the council.
The OPM stated that Underwood’s membership on the council essentially makes her the government’s chief diversity officer, but Underwood stated that the council also aims to influence groups outside of government.
“We need more people who respect and affirm diversity, equity and inclusion to run for political office at all levels,” Underwood said.
The OPM went on to claim that it intends to use “clear strategies, benchmarks, and metrics,” in order to help diversity officers implement the agency’s goals.
