The Plan reaffirms the Commonwealth's commitment to non-discrimination and equal employment opportunity fair treatment of applicants and employees without regard to race, color, national origin, sex, age, religion, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, veteran status, genetic information or ancestry.

Semi-Annual Reports on Female and Minority Employment 

The Office of Diversity & Equality is committed to ensuring greater diversity within state government. Kentucky Revised Statute 18A.138(4) directs the Personnel Cabinet to produce a Semi-Annual Report on Female & Minority Employment in order to provide state officials with a progress assessment of the Commonwealth's Affirmative Action Plan.

The Office of Diversity & Equality produces these reports, as well as diversity and EEO training for the various cabinets, in order to assist with creating a workforce that reflects the diversity found within the Commonwealth.  Continuing success in securing a diverse workforce is a legal and moral imperative.  This report assists the various cabinets to assess their plans for the recruitment, retention and promotion of minorities and women.
