PARTNERSHIP FOR PUBLIC SERVICE PRESIDENT AND CEO, MAX STIER’S, STATEMENT ON DIVERSITY, EQUITY AND INCLUSION IN THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT

September 23, 2020

WASHINGTON – The multiple, historic challenges faced by the federal government demonstrate the need for effective leadership from at all levels of federal service. Diversity, equity and inclusion training is critical to developing effective leadership and building a diverse workforce with equitable opportunities to contribute, succeed and grow. Recent guidance from the Trump administration places troubling limitations on the racial discrimination training federal employees can receive.  

The Partnership for Public Service remains committed to working with federal leaders to create an environment of belonging where all public servants are valued and feel like they matter. We will continue our collaborative work to make our federal workforce more diverse, equitable and inclusive because those are the qualities of an effective government and ultimately, a strong democracy.
