AEAA Staff manage and oversee the Agency’s Affirmative Employment and Special Emphasis Programs.

The plan is developed in accordance with the guidelines established by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Management Directive (MD) 715. The Agency’s plan includes all Program Offices, Regions, and Laboratories. The MD 715 provides guidelines on identifying triggers and conducting barrier analysis within the workforce. MD 715 outlines six essential elements of a Model Title VII and Rehabilitation Act program. These elements are:

AEAA Staff manages EPA's Special Emphasis Programs which are designed to assist management in eliminating disparate treatment or institutional barriers that deny equal opportunities. National Special Emphasis Program Managers in AEAA develop internal EEO policies and procedures, develop and implement training, and provide oversight and technical assistance to Headquarters Program Management Offices, Regional Offices and Laboratories. EPA has established eight Special Emphasis Programs located within the Office of Civil Rights. The Special Emphasis Programs include: American Indian/Alaska Native Employment Program; Asian American/Pacific Islander Employment Program; Black Employment Program; Disability Employment Program; Experienced Feds Program; Federal Women’s Program; Hispanic Employment Program; and the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Program.
