EEOC Starts New Fellows Program
Naomi Earp, who chairs the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, launched a new Fellows Program to strengthen partnerships with the federal sector and educational communities yesterday.
The program will "provide a unique opportunity for the successful candidates of federal agencies and educational institutions to be contributing members of an EEOC leadership team that shapes policy and processes impacting all employment sectors. The program will allow federal employees, professors, and graduate students to actively engage in research and projects related to eradicating job discrimination and fostering inclusive workplaces," the agency said.
Earp and Office of Federal Operations (OFO) Director Carlton Hadden participated in the ceremony, along with Dr. Joseph Cordes, director of the School of Public Policy and Public Administration at George Washington University; Dr. Ronald Sanders, Chief Human Capital Officer of the Office of the Director, National Intelligence; Dr. James Donaldson, dean of the College of Arts and Science at Howard University; and also Marcia Coates, EEOC Fellows executive director.
