Washington, D.C., February 22, 2023: Huffington News Report Akbar Shahid Ahmed discusses discrimination within government, specifically raising topics of issues of inaction to sexual harassments complaints and the existing disparities in representation in important political appointed positions. Inclusive America, Founder and CEO, Mark Hanis was asked to comment on a congressional letter sent by Democrats on the House intelligence committee, which requested updates on Biden’s working group on the national security workforce.
Mark Hanis explains to HuffPost “[that] there has not been “any substantive engagement” with the inquiry. White House staff privately briefed House and Senate staffers on diversity efforts following the letter, a White House official told HuffPost. Yet the quarterly reports remain out of public sight.
“If you talk to [the Presidential Personnel Office] or [the Office of Personnel Management] or various chief diversity officers, at the beginning they would say, ‘Our hands are full ― we’re working on it,’” Hanis said of inclusion efforts. “While that’s obviously true at the beginning of the administration … two years in, it’s less valid because the dust has settled and the results are very clear.’ “
