Report by Henry Bryant of the NYS Department of Correctional Services describing the department's affirmative action plan and goals attained, NY, 1980. Bryant's report highlights an extensive recruitment program designed by the department to attract minority job applicants, as well as a focus on encouraging the hiring of Hispanics for positions in the Department of Corrections.
Executive Order 40 (1976) established a New York State government-wide affirmative action mandate and required every state agency to draft a plan for the achievement of equal employment opportunities for ethnic minorities and women. The following year, in response to the same executive order, the Department of Civil Service established a Merit System Affirmative Action Office. In 1981, all state agencies were required to submit a report detailing their affirmative action plans, and how the plans had been fulfilled.
