OEO Holds Dual Awards Ceremony

The Office of Equal Opportunity and Diversity Management recently held its EEO Counselors and Special Emphasis Programs' Awards Ceremony. In the past, OEODM honored EEO counselors in an awards ceremony. This year OEODM Director Lawrence Self wanted also to recognize employees and managers who devoted their time and talents on the various special emphasis programs, which consist of different committees and organizations, as well as OEODM-sanctioned employee groups.

The keynote address was given by Bonita V. White, director, EEO programs group, Office of the Secretary, HHS. White's presentation was dynamic and spoke to the soul of volunteering and serving in collateral duty positions, especially in the demanding role of EEO counselor.
