ABOUT ME

A leader, I come to the table with a solid background in civil rights laws and regulations. This talent includes extensive leadership in Equal Opportunity (EO), Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) and diversity management, broad knowledge of civil rights compliance in federally assisted and conducted programs and activities, as well as the ability to conduct analyses and evaluate the long-range activity and provide recommendations to improve the effectiveness of civil rights operations in meeting mission-critical goals and objectives at the strategic level. I am a skilled practitioner in all aspects of staff equal employment and diversity training (cultural sensitivity), organizational development, and recruitment through collaboration with human capital with a unique ability to translate new legislation into program goals, action, and services. This also includes expert knowledge of employee relations, labor relations, restructuring for change, EO/EEO compliance and audits, and developing strategic business plans incorporating diversity goals and objectives. I am an expert on EEO complaint processing to include Final Agency Decisions (FAD). Led many successful cross-functional teams, providing strong project management skills, developing plans, determining resources (personnel and budget), and managing multiple projects simultaneously. Expertise in other programs (operations and security management) that may have an impact on civil rights laws covering Title I, II, VI, VII, and IX with proven success in optimizing organizational growth, productivity, and efficiency in these areas. I also embrace new challenges and employ exceptional leadership and investigation skills. I have 30 years’ experience in civil rights (U.S. Army, state, and federal levels) 23 of those years have been in leadership/management.
