"CIA Director John Brennan commissioned the Diversity in Leadership Study (DLS) in 2014 to explore why minority officers were not rising to the Agency's senior leadership ranks at a rate comparable to non-minority officers. The Study, published in June 2015, provides a rigorous roadmap to improve the diversity of the Agency's leadership and build a more inclusive culture. The Implementation Team accomplished its first-year objectives, specifically by raising awareness about the Study, demonstrating progress in key areas through collaboration with institutional stakeholders and workforce Action Teams, and by developing baseline measures to monitor progress. Year Two of implementation will focus on tackling the complex challenges, and years three and beyond will center on institutionalizing progress to solidify the diversity of CIA's leadership and the inclusiveness of its culture."
