USAID Suspends All Workplace Diversity, Inclusion Training To Comply With Trump Administration Executive Order

NPR: Why Diversity Training Has Been Suspended At USAID
“The Trump administration issued an executive order and memorandum in September, prohibiting any discussion in the federal workforce of concepts such as systemic racism, white privilege, and unconscious bias during workplace diversity training. … As a result, the U.S. Agency for International Development, or USAID — one of the largest official foreign aid agencies in the world — suspended all diversity and inclusion training on Sept. 30, one week after the order was issued…” (Lu, 10/27).
