Making $118,000 a year as 'diversity and inclusion specialist' for the government

Are you unemployed, lacking a college degree, possessing no discernible skills, and suffering from not much work experience?

Get a job at Starbucks or McDonald's.  Or you can go to work for the Energy Department as a "diversity and inclusion specialist" and earn up to $118,000 a year.

Washington Free Beacon:

The Department of Energy (DOE) will pay a “Diversity and Inclusion Specialist” up to $118,000 a year, according to a new job opening with the federal government.

The full-time position, which opened up on Monday, will pay a minimum of $90,000 a year to a person who will come up with “effective inclusive practices and policies” for the agency.

“The Diversity and Inclusion Specialist position is located in the Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI), Office of Economic Impact and Diversity, U.S. Department of Energy (DOE),” the job postingstated. “The office is responsible for providing leadership, direction, coordination, evaluation and support for managing a diverse workforce and establishing effective inclusive practices and policies at DOE.”

To apply, one must be a diversity and inclusion “expert.” The person hired will provide DOE managers with guidance.

“The Diversity and Inclusion Specialist serves as a subject matter expert and advisor to the Department of Energy (DOE) leadership on diversity management and inclusive practices, and assists with leading the integration of diversity and inclusion principles of into DOE’s workplace culture,” the posting said. “Provides advice and guidance to supervisors and managers on best practices associated with leading employees from diverse backgrounds and perspectives, and aligns inclusion initiatives with the organizational mission, goals, strategies and metrics, in accordance with Executive Order 13583, and guidance provided by the Office of Personnel Management.”

The position also requires developing a “DOE-wide action plan to accomplish diversity and inclusion outcomes” every year. The plans were mandated by the executive order signed by President Barack Obama in August 2011.

What a fabulous job opportunity! All you have to do is sit around all day dreaming up new and clever ways to "include" disparate elements of the Democratic Party coalition.  Think of all the new "rights" and "privileges"  you can create out of thin air.  Bathrooms and break rooms for transgenders, queers, unisex, and no-sex workers; "safe areas" where no microagressions can occur against blacks or Hispanics; mandatory sensitivity training; and on and on.

With great benefits, liberal vacation, sick days, and leave policy, not to mention a pension to die for, some lucky soul who is hired for this job will virtually be set for life.  But I have a sneaking suspicion that ordinary straight white males and females need not apply.  After all, DOE doesn't want our white privilege getting in the way of "progress."
