Cuomo announces minority Advisory Council

On Friday, Gov. Cuomo announced he has a plan for advancing the hiring of strong minority candidates for positions in the state government workforce. He has created The Advisory Council on Diversity and Inclusion. He also stated that the New York Secretary of State will chair the Council. Cuomo said, “New York’s diversity has always been its greatest strength. Our MWBE has become a national model, and we are going to do the same with our hiring practices so that the state’s workforce reflects the strength of our communities. We believe that bringing people together and being inclusive – not divisive – is the best way to create a state that works for everyone, and together we will continue to raise the bar and build a better future for all New Yorkers.” The intention of the council is to accelerate the rate of racial and ethnic minorities in the state government workforce.   The Advisory Council will be examining data and best practices in public and private sectors; seeking out challenges and opportunities that presently exist in the system, and working with State agencies to design a Five-Year Strategic Plan for Statewide Diversity and Inclusion.
