The Department of the Interior requires all supervisors and managers to complete a minimum of 8 hours of training related to EEO (Equal Employment Opportunity) and Diversity and the training is required annually by fiscal year.
The EEO/Diversity Training is in compliance with Secretary Salazar's Memo dated January 29, 2010. "Equal access to employment opportunities in the workplace is critical to accomplishing our goal of attracting, recruiting, hiring, developing, and retaining a quality diverse workforce that can deliver results and ensure that we are achieving the Department's mission. To ensure that the Department is moving forward in its efforts to engage all segments of the workforce, increase customer satisfaction, and improve overall performance, we must equip our managers and supervisors with the tools they need to be successful".
