Bridge Operators Must Promote 'Race and Social Justice' to Get a Job in Seattle


The job responsibilities of a bridge operator for the Seattle Department of Transportation officially include promoting equity, diversity and racial and social justice, according to a recent job listing.

The bridge operator regularly works alone in a confined space, the listing noted.

Other job responsibilities include raising and lowering moveable bridges, repairing equipment, investigating auto or vessel accidents occurring on the bridge and performing custodial duties.

The Department of Transportation’s Office of Equity & Economic Inclusion exists to “further solidify [the DOT’s] commitment to equity” and is responsible for “leading the strategic vision and leadership in the planning, promotion and advancement of equity and diversity, and leads SDOT to measurable improvements.”

Seattle has historically been among the most heavily white major cities in the U.S. but is quickly becoming more diverse, according to The Seattle Times.

The city of Seattle has held numerous diversity training sessions, at least one of which racially segregated employees and instructed white employees to “undo [their] own whiteness]” in 2020.

The Seattle Public Schools district provides teachers with trainings on race and white privilege which, among other things, inform white teachers that they are privileged on account of their white skin and must “bankrupt [their] privilege in acknowledgement of [their] thieved inheritance,” according to Christopher Rufo of the Manhattan Institute.
