EEOC Adopts New Strategic Plan
The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission approved its new strategic plan that will be in effect through fiscal year 2026.
The plan outlines the commission’s goals of preventing employment discrimination and advancing equal employment opportunities.
The commission will focus on increasing public awareness and education about the EEOC, while also increasing training and resources for investigations with the EEOC’s law enforcement authorities.
“The new strategic plan reflects our thoughtful assessment of the agency’s mission, goals, and objectives in light of current conditions and what we expect in the next few years,” EEOC Chair Charlotte Burrows said.
As part of the plan, the agency will put an increased focus on systemic discrimination.
Specifically, the EEOC will look to expand its capacity to eliminate systemic barriers to equal opportunity in the workplace. This includes training staff to identify trends and investigate these cases.
The commission also looks to improve its service to the public, and leverage technology and outreach services, specifically in vulnerable communities.
As part of the plan, officials said they will further enhance intake services.
To support employers, EEOC officials will work to emphasize best practices that employers can adopt to prevent workplace discrimination.
