Preventing employment discrimination from occurring in the federal workplace is preferable to trying to deal with the consequences of discrimination. EEOC is committed to providing training and technical assistance, outreach and educational programs to assist employers, employees and stakeholder groups understand and prevent discrimination. We believe that discrimination can be averted if federal agencies and their employees know their legal rights and responsibilities. EEOC can help you meet the goal of making your federal agency a Model Agency.
EEOC representatives are available, on a limited basis, to make presentations and participate in meetings with federal employees and employers, and their representative groups. For information on No-Cost Federal Outreach, please send an email to FederalTrainingandOutreach@eeoc.gov. You may also contact one of the EEOC Outreach Program Coordinators in an EEOC field office.
