Diversity is just a catch phrase for the leadership team

Human Resources Associate (Former Employee)
Denver, CO

I worked at Denver Public Schools full-time for more than a year

ProsThey are trying to change

ConsThere is NO diversity when it comes to the leadership teams. For example, in HR 99% of all Manager level and above are white females...making hiring decisions on diversity. The need to walk the walk...its sad that they can't see that.

Unfortunately, this is leading to to droves of diverse workers to leave all of the time.

I also feel that when it comes to management, all they do is sit down with their teams and go over what they do wrong...no matter how much right they do.

Advice to Senior ManagementTake a look at your leadership and ask why you are still having issues...

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
