Human Mosaics Move The Nation

The Federal Government, through its Office of Personnel Management (OPM), has defined “workforce diversity” as a collection of individual attributes that together help agencies pursue organizational objectives efficiently and effectively. Similarly, “inclusion” is defined as a set of behaviors (a culture) that encourages employees to feel valued for their unique qualities and experience a sense of belonging. From these definitions, OPM developed the phrase “inclusive diversity” as a set of behaviors that promote collaboration within a diverse group. This article explores the work of the U.S. Department of Transportation and its partners, including state departments of transportation, to incorporate inclusion and engagement as core values to help knock down employment barriers; facilitate communication among communities, organizations, and individuals; help ensure knowledge transfer; and expedite project delivery.
