Black Caucus Lauds Diversity Initiative Launch

Washington, DC – Congressional Black Caucus Chairwoman Rep. Barbara Lee  has released the following statement applauding the creation of an online resume bank to increase diversity in the U.S. House of Representatives:

“Throughout our 39 year history, the Congressional Black Caucus has advocated for a diverse federal workforce, including in Congressional offices and legislative branch agencies. The creation of an online resume bank is essential to ensuring that all efforts are made to recruit and retain personnel on Capitol Hill that reflects every community in our nation.

“The Congressional Black Caucus has a long history of working with Congressional leadership and committee chairs on diversity initiatives, and we applaud this new effort to help connect House offices and legislative branch agencies with a diverse pool of candidates.

“We look forward to working with the incoming House leadership to strengthening these efforts to make sure the people’s house employs a workforce that truly represents America.”
