At her confirmation hearing last July before the U.S. Congress, EEOC Chairwoman Ida L. Castro emphasized her desire to establish an active dialogue with agency stakeholders to see how they and the Commission can work cooperatively to address employment discrimination issues.
"I look forward to hearing from this distinguished panel of civil rights leaders about the priority issues affecting their communities," Chairwoman Castro said. "The Commission is committed to building more collaborative relationships with agency stakeholders in order to better meet the needs of those we serve and move closer to our shared goal of eradicating discrimination in the workplace."
