Is there a skills assessment in this plan or is it just checking a ethnic box? Seems like discrimination lawsuits brewing if there is no skills assessment.

"The next step is to create an internal, interdepartmental Core Equity Team to start creating a Racial and Social Equity Action Plan, according to Malekafzali. That plan will likely involve crafting a tool to assess equity impacts, an inventory with data and sources related to equity, strategies to hire and procure resources in an inclusive manner, a tool to develop equity-focused community engagement, and opportunities for staff to gain training around equity-related issues, she said in an email". Whatever that means, I wonder how much we paid someone to come up with that gibberish,
So if 15% of the population are poc, then do they need to hold 15% of all governmental positions? Do you then fire pnoc, from those positions to open them for poc,? Word salad for just another wasteful and unnecessary Bureaucracy. I thought racial discrimination was outlawed in the 60's Only in California,
