|Question #14 on the EPA sex test|
(Washington Free Beacon) - The Environmental Protection Agency will begin collecting sexual orientation and gender identity information on its employees this fall, according to an internal email.
The email sent last week by EPA Chief of Staff Matt Fritz announced a “ground-breaking” pilot program that will allow employees to answer survey questions about their sexuality.
“A professional, productive, and inclusive workplace is essential to our mission of protecting human health and the environment,” Fritz wrote. “Today EPA is taking a crucial step forward and playing a leadership role for the federal government in equal employment opportunity and diversity and inclusion by piloting the collection of voluntary, self-disclosed sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) workforce data.”
“When collected, safely stored, and analyzed along with other demographic information, SOGI data serve as an important resource for developing workforce engagement strategies and improving organizational performance,” he said.
The purpose of collecting the information is to make LGBT employees “feel included” at the agency.
All EPA employees will be able to enter their gender and sexual orientation into a database by this winter.Read More . . . .
