Workforce equity demands that the County identify and address structural and policy barriers to equal employment opportunity faced by our employees and communities because of their race, ethnicity, national origin, disability, gender and gender identity, sexual orientation and other protected classes. County employees across the organization have stepped forward to develop a strategic plan and help create a workplace where everyone can reach their full potential.
Safety, Trust and Belonging: The Workforce Equity Initiative
County employees filled the Multnomah Board Room Thursday, Dec. 13, to participate in the first public hearing on the County’s workforce equity recommendations and a draft implementation plan.
Jemmott Rollins Group, Inc. presented a report to the Board offering recommendations for reducing disparities.
The plan is the County’s response to longstanding inequities in the organization’s recruiting, hiring, professional development, promotion and retention practices.
