(Portland, OR) -- The city of Portland will spend 56-thousand dollars for a diversity-training program for white male managers. The program, called White Men as Full Diversity Partners, includes a three-day seminar to which the city plans to send as many as 16 white male managers. A spokesman for Portland Mayor Charlie Hales says the city's leadership is dominated by white men, and the intent is to "serve this community in all its wholeness and complexity." The seminar is scheduled to be held next month.
