In implementing the requirements of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC) Equal Employment Opportunity Management Directive 715, the Department of Homeland Security's Headquarters Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) office strives to ensure that all employees and applicants for employment enjoy equality of opportunity and employment decisions free from discrimination. In addition, the attainment of a Model EEO Program as outlined in Management Directive 715, and the identification of barriers to equal employment opportunity are consistent with the Department’s goal for organizational excellence.
It is the policy of the Department to provide equal employment opportunity for all persons. For more information regarding the Department’s commitment to equal employment opportunity, refer to the Department’s Management Directive 256-01.
The Department's Headquarters Office of EEO works to ensure all Department Headquarters employees work in an environment that is free from any form of employment discrimination. If you believe you have been subjected to unlawful discrimination you have a right to file an EEO complaint. For more information, see how to file a complaint. In some cases, complaints can be resolved through a process known as mediation. To learn more about mediation, see resolving disputes through mediation.
The Department's Headquarters EEO program is led by Carl Lucas, who can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 202-245-1131.
