A new White House executive order will drive diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility across the federal government and includes a list of action items for every agency.

  • Ahkesha Murray, principal for change management, culture, diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility at LMI, said she encourages agencies to focus on the intent of the order, which is to look for any barriers to opportunity that exist within their organizations.
  • Murray suggested outreach through surveys and focus groups to understand employee experiences, demographic analysis to uncover representation gaps, and review of policies and practices for hiring and professional development.
  • Some challenges agencies may come across are availability of data, inclination for stovepiping and human nature, said Murray.
