Racial Equity Action Plan

Overview

Racial Equity Action Plan

LAFPP tackles racial equity challenges by requiring additional training and providing our employees/Commissioners with additional resources to improve their ability to combat subtle racism. The following REP goals illustrate how LAFPP addresses these issues:

GOAL 1

Utilize Cornerstone training to increase Racial Diversity knowledge amongst staff

  • Require that 1 of the 2 non-mandatory trainings for LAFPP employees be on or related to gender diversity (10-15 minute online trainings).

Utilize training from other City Departments to increase Racial Diversity knowledge amongst staff such as:
