Women, Minorities Underrepresented in Government Management

Despite the fact that women and minorities comprise a percentage of federal employees roughly equal to their population proportion, the numbers of blacks, Hispanics and women drastically drop at mid-management levels. Women make up 43.8 percent of federal workers, but hold only 30.7 percent of mid-management positions and 24.2 percent of senior management jobs. After a series of class-action lawsuits some federal agencies, like the State Department and the FBI, made pro-active efforts under the Clinton administration to increase the numbers of women and minorities in management.
