GOODSTOCK Consulting, LLC started this petition to Attorney General Kamala Harris and

GOODSTOCK Consulting, LLC (“GOODSTOCK”) respectfully submits this petition on behalf of the American public to solicit support for a new federal cabinet position, Secretary of Equity.

Comparable to a Chief Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Officer of an organization, the Secretary of Equity would serve as a catalyst to initiate equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) assessments and policies while leveraging best practices and resources across various federal agencies. The vision of the position is to use objective information and analytics to create and support a culture of inclusion and belonging where individuals from all diversity dimensions, racial and ethnic identities, ages, nationalities, social and economic status, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, religious, political and ideological perspectives, and physical and mental abilities, are able to thrive and be actively engaged. 

The Secretary of Equity would provide strategic and programmatic leadership for diversity and inclusion initiatives that advance diversity as a critical component of federal and local policies. This position will lead a team of Equity Officers that sit within these targeted federal agencies to assess the existing and potential disparities specific to that agency and its respective industries - greater than racial disparities and within all diversity dimensions. As mentioned, this position would work across various agencies with specific interest and collaborative partnerships with the agencies that directly impact the social determinants of health like the Department of Justice, Department of Health and Human Services, Department of Education, Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Department of Treasury, the Small Business Administration and the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. 

GOODSTOCK firmly believes that thoughtful organizational development, federal appointments, and complementary policies are critical in establishing and strengthening environments in which EDI are interwoven in daily work efforts and the culture of the country. In addition, this work must be transparent and serve as an accountability tool for the government to the people.
