The U.S. Postal Service is committed to fostering diversity at all levels, Chief Operating Officer David Williams told a gathering of African-American postal leaders and employees last week.
“We are proud to represent a diverse employee population,” Williams said during his keynote address at the national convention for African-American Postal Leaders United for Success (A-PLUS) in Philadelphia.
“We endeavor to embrace an inclusive environment that recognizes and values the richness of people’s viewpoints, experiences, cultures and backgrounds.”
Williams discussed the Postal Service’s efforts, which include:
- Expanding its Executive Diversity Council, the organization’s senior advisory group on diversity and inclusion matters
- Offering more training to help postal leaders effectively manage diversity in their workplaces
- Participating in activities such as Celebrate Diversity Month, which is held each April to help employees from all walks of life gain a deeper understanding and appreciation of each other
