EEOC Open Meeting Tomorrow in Miami; Solutions to Workplace Barriers on Agenda

If you’re in Miami, Florida tomorrow, stop on by Miami Dade College where the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission will be holding a forum open to the public to view the commission’s deliberations.

EEOC commissioners and a group of invited panelists will consider discuss solutions to workplace barriers in hiring, pay, promotion and retention.

“The multicultural and ethnically diverse population of South Florida provides a fitting lens through which to examine these issues, which affect workplaces across our nation,” the EEOC announcement of the meeting said.

Typical of these meetings, the panelists are a hodgepodge of practitioners from the public and private sectors, including:

• Barbara Arnwine, President, Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law
• Iliana Castillo-Frick, Vice Provost HR, Miami Dade College
• Donald R. Livingston, Partner, Akin Gump Strauss Hauer & Feld
• Kathleen Lundquist, President and Chief Executive Officer, APT Metrics, Inc.
• Victoria Mesa-Estrada, Attorney, Mesa & Coe Law, P.A.
• William Spriggs, Chief Economist, AFL-CIO
• Robert Weisberg, EEOC Regional Attorney, Miami District Office
