The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) held a public meeting last week to discuss implementation of the Commission’s fiscal year 2012-2016 Strategic Plan. The Commission approved the Strategic Plan in a 4-1 vote in February 2012.
The plan serves as a framework for the Commission in achieving this mission by focusing on three objectives: strategic law enforcement, education and outreach, and efficiently serving the public. The three strategic objectives each have a number of performance measures detailing outcomes to be achieved during the four-year period the plan is in effect. The performance measures are designed to assess the Commission’s progress in carrying out its mission in a time of static or declining resources and a growing need for its services.
The Agency’s Performance Improvement Officer (PIO), Claudia Withers, answered questions about Performance Plan 1, addressing the Strategic Enforcement Plan (SEP) and each of the performance measures. Withers reiterated the agency’s commitment to mission-critical thinking, transparent governance, inter-agency collaboration and public participation.
For a full review on the meeting, take a look at the EEOC press release. The Commission will hold open the Commission meeting record until March 6th, and invites audience members, as well as other members of the public, to submit written comments on any issues or matters discussed at the meeting. Public comments may be mailed to Commission Meeting, EEOC Executive Officer, 131 M Street, N.E., Washington, D.C. 20507, or emailed to: Commissionmeetingcomments@eeoc.gov.
