Changing Commitment into Action: Employment of Women and Minorities in Alaska State Government.
Alaska Advisory Committee to the United States Commission on Civil Right, Juneau.
This report on equal employment opportunities in agencies, offices, and departments of the State government in Alaska was submitted by the Alaska Advisory Committee to the United States Commission on Civil Rights as part of its responsibility to advise the Commission about civil rights problems within the State. The report examines recruitment, hiring, and promotion practices in the State government and State responsibility for providing equal employment opportunites and affirmative action. Information for the report was gathered from each department within the State government, the Office of the Governor, the court system, the Legislative Affairs Agency, the University of Alaska, State and Federal enforcement agencies, unions, minority and women advocacy groups, and from individual citizens. The Advisory Committee found that women and minorities are underrepresented and underutilized throughout State government. Recommendations are made for increased recruitment and training efforts, updated affirmative action plans, and improved employment opportunities. (Author/MK)
