STATEMENT FROM THE CITY OF BOSTON ON DIVERSITY DATA
BOSTON - Tuesday, May 17, 2016 - The following statement can be attributed to Laura Oggeri, Chief Communications Officer for the City of Boston:
"The Mayor has championed making diversity data of Boston's employees public, both through the diversity dashboard released this month as well as last year's workforce report. The Boston Globe has always had that data readily available to them. The Mayor's concern continues to be respecting the privacy of city employees who may not wish to have their names attached to their race information in the press."
