Achieving Workforce Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in Local Government


Sale price Free

A common corollary to serving a diverse community is to achieve a workforce that looks like that community.  This is easier said than done, particularly amidst high labor turnover and public sector retirements.  A similar challenge arises among non-diverse small or rural governments trying to attract diverse candidates to apply to jobs where they might be the first person of their demographic profile on staff. 

This webinar will look at strategies local governments have implemented to achieve a more representative workforce and build a sense of inclusion and belonging that fosters improved staff satisfaction, morale, and retention.  In addition to showcasing local government managers’ perspectives, the session will also include related data from a MissionSquare Research Institute survey, focus groups, and related research.
