From the Highlights: "EEOC's [Equal Employment Opportunity Commission] Management Directive 715 requires that, to attract and retain top talent, federal agencies are to identify EEO [equal employment opportunity] barriers in their workforces and deficiencies in their EEO programs, execute plans to address them, and report annually to EEOC. GAO [Government Accountability Office] reported in 2009 on DHS's opportunities to address barriers to EEO in its workforce and in 2019 on DHS's challenges to ensuring EEO in its workforce. GAO was asked to testify on the steps DHS has taken to (1) identify and address barriers to EEO in its workforce, (2) identify and address EEO program deficiencies, (3) address areas of noncompliance in its EEO program identified by EEOC, and (4) oversee and support components' EEO programs."
