EEOC Report Examines Obstacles Facing African Americans in Federal Workplace
Excerpt from summary:
"Following are the seven obstacles identified in the EEOC African
American Workgroup Report:
Unconscious biases and perceptions about African Americans still
play a significant role in employment decisions in the federal sector.
African Americans lack adequate mentoring and networking
opportunities for higher-level and management positions.
Insufficient training and development assignments perpetuate
inequalities in skills and opportunities for African Americans.
Narrow recruitment methods negatively impact African Americans.
The perception of widespread inequality among African Americans in
the federal work force hinders their career advancement.
Educational requirements create obstacles for African Americans in
the federal work force.
EEO regulations and laws are not adequately followed by agencies
and are not effectively enforced."
