Omo Akintan started off her presentation at General Government committee earlier this week by reprimanding chairman Paul Ainslie for calling her division People, Equity and Human Resources.
“You just committed the one faux-pas that is not allowed,” said the new executive director.
“You read HR as human resources, instead of human rights.”
Ainslie, sheepishly apologized, indicating he’s not had coffee yet.
Not that he needed to because unbeknownst to most, the city’s Human Resources organization had combined with Equity, People and Human Rights division last year, as Akintan explained.
