                                       1. Introduction

Clark County is committed to providing equal opportunity in employment and in access
to all county services. This commitment applies regardless of race, color, religion, creed,
sex, marital status, national origin, disability, age, veteran status, on-the-job injury, sexual
orientation and other conditions identified in Policy 3.0, Human Resources. Employment
decisions are made without consideration of these or any other factors that are prohibited
by law.

The purpose of the county’s EEOP (Equal Employment Opportunity Plan) is to ensure
full and equal participation of all qualified individuals in the county’s workforce. The
county’s commitment to that full participation is fundamental to its daily operations and
public service activities.

The county’s current EEOP was approved by the US Department of Justice (DOJ) in
September 2006. The 2008 EEOP effective dates will be September 2008-10. The DOJ
requirements are: employers collect and analyze key employment data; organize by race,
national origin, gender and job category groups; and compare with area community labor
data. Significant underutilizations are identified; objectives related to such
underutilizations are written; and action steps to achieve such objectives are developed.

In 2006, the Board adopted a new Diversity Policy in order to ensure that our County
continues to value the diversity of the workforce and the community. In 2008, a Diversity
Strategic Plan has been prepared.

The EEO and Diversity Strategic Plans are presented to the Board of Clark County
Commissioners. Public outreach efforts included press releases, mailings to over 100
organizations, announcements in the County internal, weekly employee publication
(FYI), and a public forum on Tuesday, July 15, 2008 at the Marshall Community Center,
1009 East McLoughlin Blvd, Vancouver. In addition, Plans were posted on the County
web site and presented to the Management Team and the Diversity Committee. Copies
are at: http://www.clark.wa.gov/hr/documents.html. The Board also held a public work
session on Wednesday, September 3 at 11 am and public meeting on Tuesday, September
23, 2008.

The Plan will be effective from September 2008 through September 2010.


                  2. County Nondiscrimination and Diversity Policies


Clark County is an equal opportunity employer and prohibits discrimination and
harassment based on race, color, religion, creed, sex, national origin, age, marital status,
the presence of any sensory, mental, or physical disability, HIV or Hepatitis C status, the
use of a trained dog guide or service animal by a disabled person, sexual
orientation/gender identity, veteran status or any other status protected by law. This
prohibition underscores the County’s commitment to provide a work environment free
from unlawful discrimination and harassment for its employees, the public it serves and
those with whom the County conducts business.


The County’s policy of equal opportunity and non-discrimination extends to all
employment-related matters, including hiring, layoffs, promotion, transfer, work
assignments, pay, benefits, discipline and training. Any form of discrimination based on
race, color, religion, creed, sex, national origin, age, marital status, the presence of any
sensory, mental, or physical disability or the use of a trained dog guide or service animal
by a disabled person, sexual orientation/gender identity, veteran’s status or any other
status protected by law is strictly prohibited. In addition, the County supports and
promotes the goals and benefits of a diverse workforce in all departments and levels of
the organization. The County will strive to encourage and support workforce diversity
through a range of activities, to include outreach recruitment to increase the diversity of
candidate pools for job openings, monitoring workforce data to address issues of under-
representation of protected classes, and appropriate training.

                         4.0 DIVERSITY POLICY--PURPOSE

Clark County is committed to increasing the ethnic, cultural and social diversity of its
workforce and ensuring that diversity is a key priority of our organization.

SCOPE: This policy applies to all employees and individuals engaged in work activities
on behalf of the County including regular and project employees, temporaries,
contractors, volunteers and members of the public.

Every Clark County employee has an active role and responsibility to:

   •   Create, establish and maintain an inclusive culture that allows each employee the
       opportunity to excel;
   •   Embrace the rich diversity of our organization and the growing diversity of our
       community; and
   •   Provide services to the public in a culturally competent manner.

                        3. Workforce and Labor Market Analysis
This plan includes the following: analysis of the county workforce and community labor
market; comparisons of 2006 and 2008 underutilizations; identification of significant
2008 underutilizations; specific objectives related to significant underutilizations; and
steps the county will take to achieve such objectives.

In 2008 DOJ made several EEOP changes, such as: an online template for labor market
comparisons; revisions of some race-ethnic group definitions (i.e., the “other” category
has been dropped; “two or more races” has been added; and the Asian-Pacific Islander
has been modified).

The 2008 Plan uses the same labor market analysis applied in 2006. The 2006 EEOP used
the OR-WA PMSA (primary metropolitan statistical area) workforce data base for these
job categories: Officials, Professionals-Administrators, Technicians, Protective Services-
Sworn, and Protective Services-Non Sworn. The OR-WA PMSA data base is the most
accurate comparison because most hires for these positions are from the greater Portland-
Vancouver region. Clark County 2000 Census data was used for these job categories:
Administrative Support, Skilled Craft and Service/Maintenance because the primary
hiring is from Clark County.

Table A, Labor Market Analysis (next page), is how our workforce compares to the
available labor market for each job category by race, ethnicity and gender. All
underutilizations are listed in Appendix A and Table A. The data show: no
underutilizations in 67 % (N=72) of the groups; underutilizations in 32% (N=36) of the
groups; and underutilizations from a low of -1% to a high of -22%.

Table B compares the 2006 and 2008 group underutilizations. A group is a job category
and race-ethnic-gender comparison. For example, Hispanic males employed as
Technicians is a “group”. In 2006, there were fifty nine categories with underutilization
ranging from a low of -.2 % to a high of -31.3%. The total number of underutitilized
groups was reduced from 59 to 24 from 2006 to 2008. Moreover, there were only 29
groups with no underutilizations in 2006. In 2008, this increased to 63 groups. Appendix
F compares underutilizations by FTE (full time equivalent) employees needed to
eliminate all underutilizations. Table C includes underutilizations identified as

Cells with numerals are significant underutilizations (at least 3 or more FTEs employees needed to eliminate underutilization).
* Minor underutilizations: two or less FTEs needed to eliminate underutilization.
Blank Cells: no underutilizations.
N/A: Per DOJ guidance, underutilization of white males in administrative support should not be identified as significant.

                             4. Significant Underutilizations

The data was analyzed to determine significant underutilizations. These are displayed in
Table C. Most underutilization would be eliminated by one or two hires or promotions.
The areas of significant underutilization are those that would need three or more new
hires to eliminate underutilization. Therefore, the significantly underutilized areas are:

   •   Hispanics: males in Technicians, Protective Services Sworn, Administrative
       Support, Skilled Craft and Service-Maintenance and females in Protective
       Services Sworn and Protective Services Non Sworn job categories

   •   Asians: males in Professionals, Administrative Support, and Skilled Craft and
       females in Professionals and Technicians categories

   •   Blacks: males in the Administrative Support category

   •   Two or more races: males in Professionals category

   •   Whites: females in Technicians, Protective Services (Sworn and Non Sworn) and
       Service-Maintenance categories

In addition to the above specific, significant underutilizations, the county continues to be
committed to eliminating all underutilizations. The objectives and action steps in the Plan
are targeted at increasing the representation of all races, genders and national origin
groups to reflect our community labor market.

According to the 2006 Census update, the county minority population for these groups is:
Hispanic: 6.4%, Blacks: 2.1%, and Asian: 3.9%. Currently, Clark County government’s
comparable employee percents are: Hispanic: 2.7%, Blacks: 2.2% and Asian: 1.8%.

The county positions included in the eight DOJ job categories are in Appendix B.

                                    5. 2008 Objectives

The objectives are based on the significant underutilizations identified as a result of the
comparisons of the relevant community labor force for each job category and protected
groups. These are written in accordance with guidance and examples provided by the
DOJ for EEO Plans.

   1. To encourage equal employment opportunities for Hispanics in these job
      categories: males in Technicians, Protective Services Sworn, Administrative
      Support, Skilled Craft and Service-Maintenance and females in Protective
      Services Sworn and Non Sworn

   2. To encourage equal employment opportunities for Asians in these job categories:
      males in Professionals, Administrative Support, and Skilled Craft and females in
      Professionals and Technicians

   3. To encourage equal employment opportunities for Black males in the
      Administrative Support category

   4. To encourage equal employment opportunities for two or more races (males) in
      the Professionals category

   5. To encourage equal employment opportunities for white females in these job
      categories: Technicians, Protective Services (Sworn and Non Sworn), and

   6. To encourage equal employment opportunities in all County job categories.

The next section describes specific steps and actions to be taken to attain these objectives.

                      6. Steps and Actions to Achieve Objectives

The county is experiencing a temporary decline in revenue. If this continues during the
next two year plan, it will likely impact employment opportunities and recruitment

Clark County will:

   1. Participate in up to six job fairs and/or other outreach venues that emphasize
      diversity and send female and minority staff members including professionals and
      officials to speak and recruit at local community colleges, technical schools,
      universities, career expos, and conferences.

   2. Continue to review employment organizational data related to job categories that
      show significant underutilization to identify issues that may pose barriers for any
      protected class, including but not limited to Hispanics, Asians and Blacks.

   3. Continue to examine applicant flow data for recent and upcoming vacancies at
      least quarterly; recruitment team will continue to evaluate advertising practices
      and encourage hiring managers to explore and utilize industry specific advertising
      (e.g. listservs and publications) as well as outreach events.

   4. Track and evaluate applicant screening, hiring, promotion, termination, transfer
      and discipline rates using race, national origin, and gender data through the use of
      a standard monthly report which tracks EEO information for all applicants and

   5. Develop training of interview panel members to increase understanding of bias
      and favoritism as well as clarification for the panel’s roles and responsibilities in
      the hiring process.

   6. Continue incorporating one or more diversity-related questions in supplemental
      questionnaires and/or interviews for all positions. Interview panels will include
      diverse members of the county’s workforce.

   7. Continue to collaborate with hiring managers during the recruitment process to
      sustain awareness of county goals of increasing the diversity of applicant pools
      for underrepresented categories. Annual meetings will be held with all managers
      and all supervisory personnel to ensure compliance with our EEO policy, to assist
      the managers in identifying problem areas, and in the formulation of effective

   8. Advertise job openings in newspapers, journals and electronic media and web
      sites that target specific diverse populations and provide copies of job openings to
      targeted outreach organizations (see Appendix D, EEOP, for outreach groups
      receiving all county job postings).

9. Include a wider range of community groups in recruitment. Increase relationships
   in various ethnically and socially diverse communities and partner with
   community partners and organizations.

10. Implement a new Diversity Strategic Plan throughout the county by broadening
    the talents, perspectives and relationships of the workforce in order to provide
    quality services to our public. See Diversity Plan for details.

                                7. Dissemination of Plan
A. Internal Dissemination:

   1. The EEO policy is included in the Human Resources Policy Manual made
      available to all employees on the Intranet and within their departments. Elements
      of these policies are communicated to employees during the initial new employee
      orientation and periodically through standard employee communication processes.

   2. The county's commitment to EEO is presented as part of our orientation program
      for new employees.

   3. The EEO policy and discrimination complaint process is published semi-annually
      in the Clark County employee newsletter.

   4. The intent of the EEO policy and individual responsibility for the implementation
      of the county policy will be discussed periodically at department head staff

   5. Informal discussions will be held annually with county employees regarding the
      county EEO policy and Plan.

   6. State and federal EEO notices will be posted on bulletin boards throughout the

   7. Records of EEO applicant flow data for all positions are monitored and
      appropriate annual reports made to elected officials/department heads.

   8. The importance of complying with Federal EEO regulations will be discussed
      annually and communicated in writing with union officials to secure their
      understanding and cooperation. A nondiscrimination clause is included in union
      contracts. All contractual provisions will be reviewed to ensure they are

B. External Dissemination:

   1. All employment opportunity announcements contain the message: “Equal
      Opportunity Employer.” Prospective employees will be notified that they may
      obtain a copy of the EEOP on request.

   2. The Clark County application is periodically reviewed to determine compliance
      with the latest state and federal EEO regulations to ensure each applicant is
      provided the maximum opportunity to present her/his related qualifications.

   3. Recruiting sources, including minority and female organizations, are annually
      informed in writing of Clark County's EEO policy and commitment. The list of
      recruiting contacts will continue to be reviewed annually to determine their
      effectiveness in referring a diversity of qualified applicants. Suggestions of
      additional sources are welcome.

   4. Annually, meet with Temporary agencies to review EEO policy and plan.

   5. Job announcements are regularly distributed to the recruiting sources encouraging
      them to refer qualified applicants to assist in the implementation of our EEO

   6. The Clark County EEO policy statement is included in recruiting material.

   7. Public work sessions with the Board of County Commissioners will be held
      annually to review the county’s EEOP progress and results and reinforce the
      county’s commitment as an Equal Opportunity Employer.

   8. Clark County will strive to do business with minority- and women-owned
      business enterprises, as allowable by law, in an effort to diversify our contractual
      base. All requests for bid and request for proposals include contractual language
      addressing EEO requirements. The county will advertise bid opportunities with
      the Oregon Association of Minority Entrepreneurs which serves the greater
      Portland/Vancouver area. County bids for federally funded projects will include
      nondiscrimination requirements in the selection of subcontractors and encourage
      prospective prime contractors to affirmatively solicit quotes from sub-contractors
      who are Disadvantaged Business Enterprises.

   9. The county will be represented at recruitment functions, meetings of community
      groups, local schools, colleges, and training programs, reasserting the county's
      commitment to the Equal Employment Opportunity Plan.

   10. The county will identify and participate in job fairs and other recruitment
       functions that will assist in reaching potential applicants for positions including
       those for which significant underutilization has been identified.

11. The County's Contracting Office will provide written notice to all vendors and
    contractors that they may obtain a copy of the County's EEOP on request.

12. Bound copies of the EEOP will be sent to the County Public Library so that
    copies may be put on display in the Main Library and in the reading rooms of
    neighborhood libraries throughout the County.

13. Post electronic copies of EEOP on county internet and intranet.
