These days, every organization is coming up with a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion — commonly referred to as DEI — strategic plan. The hiring of diversity and inclusion executives has grown 113% in the last five years. As of February 2021, half of S&P 500 companies have a chief diversity officer. The national agencies of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) are also putting together DEI plans as a response to the General Assembly mandate for a Race Audit in 2018. However, this is not the church jumping on the latest business trend.
Worshipers at the Presbyterian Center Chapel created their version of the Wailing Wall Wednesday, repenting from racism and committing to embark on the new life promised by Jesus in the gospels.
Acting on the referral 11-24 of the 222nd General Assembly (2016) of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.), a team from the Presbyterian Mission Agency (PMA) is preparing to report on its race audit in the first quarter of 2018.
