TIGTA Commends IRS for Diversity of its Senior Staff
The Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration yesterday released Internal Revenue Service Diversity Demographics Compare Favorably With Other Federal Agencies’ Senior Executive Service Ranks (2011-10-006):
The IRS’s diversity demographic statistics compare favorably with other Federal agencies’ SES ranks. For example, in Fiscal Year 2009, the IRS SES level had a higher percentage of diversity in eight of 12 Office of Personnel Management diversity categories. Also, three of the other four diversity categories were underrepresented by less than one percent. The success the IRS has achieved in its SES diversity demographics is the result of key diversity practices that have been integrated into business processes agency‑wide, as well as top level executive commitment and support, which have established a culture that respects and values diversity.

Whatever your view on the goals of achieving diversity - are there any studies to show an organization operates more effectively the more diverse it is? - TIGTA has no business commending, or condemning, the IRS for achieving its diversity goals. TIGTA is supposed to be an independent agency, not some kind of PC cheerleader.
