EL DORADO, AR (KTVE) - Diversity training is being proposed for El Dorado city workers.

Alderman Willie McGhee came before the City Council Thursday to make the request.

He says with the training, employees will be able to interact better in the workplace, as well as understand each other's culture.

McGhee says he and the other council members are not exempt from the training.

"We need it, everybody. Everybody that works for the people needs to be in this training, because we need to know how to represent people in our ward. I have a diverse ward, Black, White, Hispanic, Asian," says McGhee.

The diversity training workshop dates have not yet been set.
