Portland Community College has named departing Multnomah County Chief Diversity and Equity Officer Daryl Dixon one of two finalists for its top diversity job.

Here's the announcement that went out to PCC faculty and staff today:

"The Equity/Inclusion Search Committee has recommended 2 candidates be forwarded as finalists for the position. They are: Daryl Dixon who is currently the Chief Diversity & Equity for Multnomah County; and John Yasutake who is currently the Conciliation Specialist for the U.S Department of Justice in Seattle."

The salary range for the position is $82,321 to $119,363 per year.

Earlier this week, WW reported that Dixon continued to run a private consulting firm while working for the county. Dixon and former Multnomah County Chairman Jeff Cogen say they verbally agreed on that arrangement when Dixon joined the county three years ago, with the stipulation that Dixon's private business not interfere with his county work.
But records WW obtained through a public records request show that Dixon was using county resources for that business and had failed to file disclosure form as county personnel rules require.

Dixon is leaving the county Dec. 4 to "pursue other opportunities."
