$468,000 being spent to investigate state government racism Karl Baker, The News Journal
Gov. Jack Markell announced Monday his administration will pay a consultant $468,000 to investigate anti-discrimination and diversity policies within state agencies, more than a year after a controversy erupted over allegations of racism instate government.
“I remain committed to ensuring that we foster a healthy, supportive, and responsive work environment,” said Markell in a statement.
Ivy Planning Group, a Rockville, Maryland, management consulting firm, will conduct interviews with supervisors, visit various offices and survey state employees anonymously about workplace problems, among other actions.
The group will present a report to the governor’s office by the end of 2016, before Markell finishes his second and final term, said Jason Miller, a spokesman for the governor. The term of the contract is scheduled to extend until Sept. 30, 2017
Markell was part of the discriminatory practices by turning a blind-eye! I think we would be better off to ask Governor Carney to do a better job of running government in a non discriminatory way and create more diverse leadership. $468,000.00 would be better served feeding the homeless!
I wonder what brought all this about ?? Jack not able to sleep at night ?
Yep I agree !
