This includes implementing and ensuring compliance with federal and state Affirmative Action Plans and Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) policies and procedures. As part of its Affirmative Action strategy, the program provides diversity training and seeks to retain and recruit minority and female employees and applicants. Additionally, the Affirmative Action Program works to ensure EEO compliance and On-the-Job-Training externally with contractors and consultants.
