These folks sent me a media kit, and I’m only just now getting around to reading it and passing it on:
OUR Oklahoma is an initiative launched in 2010 in collaboration with Former Gov. Brad Henry as a statewide campaign designed to increase awareness and understanding of diversity throughout the State of Oklahoma.
With your help, together, we can develop a diversity plan that would result in:
- An increased awareness and understanding of diversity as a tool for economic advancements
- A strategic plan to bolster business, workforce and economic development
- Increased tourism
Which may sound like a bunch of buzzwords. Then again, we’ve gone through boom-and-bust cycles before, it’s reasonable to assume we may again, and I don’t think we’re in a position to tell people that we don’t need them because they’re [description of some demographic we supposedly don’t like].
They’re taking a survey, if you’d like to add your own views to the mix.
