Gov. Gordon released an external assessment of the Wyoming Military Department that examines processes and procedures related to the prevention of ‘indecent harassment and assaults’

Casper, WY – According to the state officials, the assessment was requested by Wyoming’s Adjutant General and completed by two independent members of the Governor’s cabinet with backgrounds in employment law and human resources.

State officials have announced that the assessment was reportedly led by Patricia Bach, Director of the Wyoming Office of Administration and Information and Robin Cooley, Director of the Wyoming Department of Workforce Services.

It reportedly reviewed the WYMD’s response process to complaints relating to harassment and assault, as well as its handling of diversity and inclusion issues.

It also recommended ways to improve those processes.

Governor Gordon believes the report shows that the public can have full confidence in the Guard, and that while there are processes and procedures that need adjustment, the culture of the Guard is supportive of changes that improve effectiveness and mission capability.
