PJ Media: CIA Director: Diversity Initiative Needs to Battle 'Group Think' at Agency
WASHINGTON -- At a hearing on ISIS and other threats to the homeland on Thursday, CIA Director John Brennan stressed the importance of a new diversity initiative at the agency "to make sure that our workforce reflects, in our attitudes, our backgrounds, our ethnicities and our perspectives, the nation we work so hard to defend."
"This is both a moral and a mission imperative," Brennan told the Senate Intelligence Committee.
The CIA's Diversity and Inclusion Strategy for 2016-2019, released in February, focuses on three key goals, according to the agency: "Weaving diversity and inclusion throughout the talent cycle" with a focus "on performance management, talent development, and learning to prepare employees and managers to fully benefit from a diverse and inclusive workplace"; "becoming an employer of choice... by recruiting in diverse communities across America and cultivating an inclusive culture that encourages collaboration, flexibility, and fairness to create an organization that is a model employer for the full diversity of America’s talent"; and "increasing diversity of leadership" by training "current leaders, managers, and supervisors to develop every officer’s potential to prepare a diverse bench of future Agency leaders."
