In this session, U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Chair Charlotte A. Burrows will share the federal commission’s priorities for 2022 and beyond. In a timely fireside chat with NRF Chief Administrative Officer and General Counsel Stephanie Martz, Burrows will discuss important aspects of the EEOC’s work, opportunities to respond to calls for diversity, inclusion, equity and accessibility, and what the future holds in light of the challenges brought about by the pandemic. In addition to remedying employment discrimination through enforcement activities, the EEOC seeks to prevent discrimination before it occurs through outreach, education and technical assistance programs.
