About Us

The Governor's Office of Minority Empowerment (OME) 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 economic development, healthcare, housing, government services and criminal justice matters.

Clear priorities were set forth which will continue to help minorities throughout the Commonwealth, while as the same time continue to move Kentucky forward. These priorities include promoting self-sufficiency through education and training, ensuring equal access to jobs and focusing on economic development.
