In statement to The Hill on Sunday morning, a spokesperson for the department said it began "pausing all training programs related to diversity and inclusion" on Friday in accordance with the White House's executive order on Combating Race and Sex Stereotyping "to allow time for review of content and materials."
The spokesperson said the order, signed by Trump last month, requires the Office of Personnel Management "to review diversity and inclusion trainings to ensure compliance, and the Department to ensure trainings, workshops, and forums do not contain 'divisive concepts.'"
"As an Executive Branch Agency, the Department of State complies with all Executive Orders. The Department’s commitment to fostering a more diverse and inclusive workplace is long-standing and steadfast. Department leadership continues to encourage the workforce to engage in inclusive conversations and other efforts to promote diversity and inclusion consistent with the [Executive Order]," the spokesperson added.
The move comes a month after Trump signed an executive order banning the teaching of so-called “divisive concepts” at federal agencies.
