Comparison of the Diversity of the Non-Faculty Workforce A one-year comparison of the diversity of the non-faculty workforce is presented in Table 7, Diversity of Non-Faculty Employees Workforce Comparison, 2010 vs. 2009. This table provides, by job group, the percentage of women and minorities in the non-faculty workforce and the availability estimate for women and minorities, for 2009 and 2010. A workforce change indicator (increase, decrease, no change) provides a comparison of these statistics. Differences in availability estimates (2010 vs. 2009) are primarily due to yearly changes in the availability of women and minorities in feeder job groups within the University.
