The Correct Answer:
B. All the goals of FEMA’s Diversity Action Plan EXCEPT FOR building a work environment that minimizes differences in perspectives and outlooks.
Federal emergency management agencies always try to hire people from different ethnic and cultural backgrounds to tackle or help as many individuals as possible during an emergency and hazardous situation.
A diverse workplace helps in understanding for lifting the cultural and language barriers in the workplace and leads to better understanding among employees about each other cultures and language values.
At the same time, working in a hazardous situation helps to understand the victims much more efficiently and effectively, which is why it becomes essential for such Agencies to hire a diverse workplace.
The Diversity Action Plan of the management agency is to build, develop, retain and engage a diverse workforce to work towards a common objective and help the population. Action Plan will also help to create a work environment that promotes diversity and inclusion.
It also builds a sustained leadership commitment to the diverse workplace through education accountability and total workforce engagement. This will help the emergency management agency to appreciate and respect cultural and religious differences to accomplish a single mission.
Optimizing diversity helps create a productive workforce that allows its employees to collaborate with other agencies. Everyone, regardless of language or cultural background, is responsible for creating a respectful workplace.
That is why it becomes essential to avoid any kind of miscommunication and respect other cultures and learn about them. Building a work environment that maximizes the differences in prospectus and outlooks is not a healthy workplace and thus will create miscommunication and problems among the employees. This is the Federal emergency management agency leader’s duty to develop training programs where employees would openly talk about their cultures and religion to educate their colleagues and let them know about other aspects of a particular culture.
