President Biden Executive Order Rescinds Diversity Training Restrictions & Requires Review of Agency Equity

MAPS welcomes the recent executive order signed by President Biden on his first day in office ordering agencies to “root out” systemic racism and other forms of discrimination both in the workplace and in their public-facing programs. The new order effectively ends the Trump Administration’s policy that denied the existence of systemic racism in the United States and also rescinds Trump’s 1776 Commission, an effort to limit public education curricula’s discussion of slavery and other racial injustice in U.S. history courses.
