Struggling to stay abreast of equal employment opportunity issues? The EEOC can help!
Since 1965, the EEOC has served as the nation's lead enforcer of employment anti-discrimination laws and chief promoter of equal employment opportunity. The Agency recently released its Fiscal Year 2012 to 2016 Strategic Plan. The Strategic Plan establishes a framework for achieving the EEOC's mission to stop and remedy unlawful employment discrimination so that the Commission's vision of justice and equality in the workplace can be realized.
The Strategic Plan lays out three objectives:to combat employment discrimination through strategic law enforcement, to prevent employment discrimination through education and outreach, and to deliver excellent services through effective systems, updated technology, and a skilled and diverse workforce.
In this installment, we're joined by EEOC Commissioner Chai Feldblum. She shares information about the Agency's outreach and education programs aimed at assisting the employer community with EEO compliance. We also discuss how the EEOC plans to incorporate more elements of social media in these programs, the importance of preventing employment discrimination, and why proactive EEO compliance should be a priority for every employer.
