TITLE
Recommendation to receive and file a staff report on Equal Employment Opportunity Plan and 2017 Workforce Gender, Age, and Ethnic Diversity Report. (Citywide)

DISCUSSION
On February 7, 2017, the City Council requested the City Manager to report back on workforce and applicant diversity data. It was requested the report include information on classified and unclassified employees, and demographic data such as gender, race, and age, salary averages, disability, veteran status, and Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) job category breakdown. This staff report provides the information requested.
Equal Employment Opportunity Plan
The Equal Employment Opportunity Plan (EEOP) is a Citywide guide for a plan of action and reference resources. The EEOP reaffirms the City’s commitment to equal opportunity in its employment practices. The EEOP also provides a review of the City’s workforce diversity compared to benchmarks and identifies areas where certain groups are underrepresented compared to the Relevant Labor Market. This EEOP helps the City identify and address areas of underrepresentation. The EEOP, covering the 2013 to 2017 period, is attached.
Workforce Demographics and Hiring

The attached Workforce Gender, Age, and Ethnic Diversity Report provides an overview of the City’s workforce demographics broken down by age, gender, ethnicity, salary, and EEO job category on a Citywide basis and by department. The report does not include employee disability and veteran status because this information is not collected. The report also provides Citywide recruitment data for classified applicants and data for Police Officer and Firefighter recruits.

This matter was reviewed by Principal Deputy City Attorney Gary J. Anderson and by Revenue Management Officer Geraldine Alejo on October 11, 2017.
