Proposition D: Diversity tracking passes

San Francisco will be tracking the ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation and disability of every board and commission member following the passage of Proposition D on Tuesday.

Until now, The City required the makeup of all advisory boards to be as broadly diverse and representative of The City’s population as possible, but The City didn’t keep track of how diverse they were.

Now, the task of keeping tabs will fall to the Commission on the Status of Women, which will provide a report on boards’ diversity every two years. Prop. D also requires that more female, minority and disabled representatives be nominated.
