The Governor's Office of Minority Empowerment (GOME) was created in March 2004 with a mission to work for the success of minorities throughout the Commonwealth. The office was charged with the primary responsibilities of ensuring that all minorities are better represented and receive equal access in the following areas of empowerment, economic development, healthcare, housing, government services, and criminal justice matters.
Governor Beshear and the GOME are working which to provide greater opportunities for Kentuckians, and minorities everywhere are benefiting from this work. Clear priorities have been set forth by Governor Beshear, which will continue to help minorities throughout the Commonwealth; while as the same time continuing to move Kentucky forward. These priorities include promoting self-sufficiency through education and training; ensuring equal access to jobs; and focusing on economic development.
