The Personnel Department’s Office of Workplace Equity (OWE) proposes the development of a Citywide Anti-Bias and Inclusion Plan to transform Citywide workplace culture and address structural inequities across City Departments and in service delivery. This pilot includes a Citywide cultural assessment, followed by tailored training, interventions, and the development of a process for increasing equity in service delivery. Through this pilot, OWE intends to develop ongoing engagement programs focused on mentoring, social interaction among diverse groups, and social accountability, contrary to the traditional approach focused on control of employees’ thoughts and behavior.
