Portland approves Rooney Rule to tackle diversity at top | OregonLive.com


Modeled after the NFL’s Rooney Rule, Portland’s Charles Jordan Standard calls on city leaders to interview at least one qualified minority, woman and disabled candidate during competitive recruitments for bureau director positions.

But it does not require competitive recruitments, meaning Portland’s mayor, four city commissioners and its chief administrator can still appoint bureau directors without interviewing diverse candidates.

Thanks. God bless.
