President Biden Rescinds Executive Order on Combating Race and Sex Stereotyping

New Executive Order directs the OMB to work with agency heads to evaluate programs and policies that perpetuate systemic barriers to opportunities for people of color and other underserved groups

President Biden’s first day on the day was a busy one with the signing of various executive orders, including one overturning the Trump administration’s controversial E.O. 13950 Combating Race and Sex Stereotyping.

The new E.O. that revokes E.O. 13950 is the Executive Order on Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities through the Federal Government. According to the new E.O. “the Federal Government’s goal in advancing equity is to provide everyone with the opportunity to reach their full potential. Consistent with these aims, each agency must assess whether, or to what extent, its programs and policies perpetuate systemic barriers to opportunities and benefits for people of color and other underserved groups.” This will be accomplished with the Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) in partnership with the heads of agencies. Within six month of this E.O., the Director of OMB must deliver a report to the President describing the best practices identified in the study with the goal of expanding these programs throughout the Federal Government.

As of today, OFCCP has not yet removed the webpages associated with E.O. 13950.
