April is Diversity Month, a time to recognize and celebrate other cultures and populations. This month, Midtown Medical is taking time to recognize the diversity in our workplace and the science and healthcare community. As we celebrate the unique cultures, backgrounds, and traditions of others, we can gain a greater appreciation for the diversity that surrounds us. At Midtown Medical Center we celebrate the Laws, Acts, and people in America that allowed for a more diverse and inclusive science and healthcare community. Celebrate with us!

Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act

WIOA is landmark legislation that is designed to strengthen and improve our nation’s public workforce system and help get Americans, including youth and those with significant barriers to employment, into high-quality jobs and careers and help employers hire and retain skilled workers.

Commission on the Advancement of Women and Minorities in Science, Engineering, and Technology Development Act

The mandate of the Commission is to research and recommend ways to improve the recruitment, retention, and representation of women, underrepresented minorities (namely, African Americans, Hispanic Americans, and American Indians), and persons with disabilities in science, engineering, and technology (SET) education and employment. Commission exploration of the status of these underrepresented populations in SET has reaffirmed the nation’s absolute economic and social imperative to ensure that all U.S. citizens enjoy full participation at all levels of SET education and the SET workforce.

Civil Rights Act of 1991

The Civil Rights Act of 1991 is a United States labor law, passed in response to United States Supreme Court decisions that limited the rights of employees who had sued their employers for discrimination. The Act represented the first effort since the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 to modify some of the basic procedural and substantive rights provided by federal law in employment discrimination cases. It provided the right to trial by jury on discrimination claims and introduced the possibility of emotional distress damages and limited the amount that a jury could award. It added provisions to Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 protections expanding the rights of women to sue and collect compensatory and punitive damages for sexual discrimination or harassment.

National Security Diversity and Inclusion Workforce Act of 2019

According to the statement of purpose in ESSA, “The purpose of this title is to provide all children significant opportunity to receive a fair, equitable, and high-quality education, and to close educational achievement gaps.”

Higher Education Opportunity Act
