The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is committed to providing equal employment opportunity for all employees and applicants for employment based on merit, without regard to race, sex, color, national origin, religion, age, sexual orientation, parental status, or disability.

EPA’s Office of Civil Rights (OCR) in the Office of the Administrator (AO) provides leadership, direction, and guidance in carrying out the Agency’s equal employment programs. OCR provides policy and technical assistance to EPA’s Headquarters offices, Regional offices, and laboratories located throughout the country in carrying out their responsibilities related to civil rights and in complying with Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) laws and regulations.

On this Website you will find information on Title VI and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This is also the place to find the latest information on the diversity of EPA's work force.
