NOAA Fisheries: Office of EEO & Diversity
Welcome to the Program Office for EEO & Diversity


Welcome to the official website of the NOAA Fisheries (NMFS) Program Office for EEO and Diversity. This office is responsible for the development and implementation of programs that encourage and support both affirmative employment and diversity and ensure compliance with Federal EEO Program requirements within NMFS.

Our objectives are to:

  • provide a full and fair opportunity for all employees and applicants, regardless of race, religion, gender, color, age (over 40), disability, national origin, genetic information and sexual orientation, 

  • enable all employees to carry out their duties in the workplace free from unlawful discriminatory treatment, including sexual and other workplace harassment and retaliation for engaging in legally protected activities; and

  • establish and maintain an easy access channel to maintain work-life balance initiatives information.

If you have any questions about any of the programs listed, please feel free to give me a call on 301-427-8025

Remember:  Any employee who feels they are a victim of discrimination or harassment must contact the NOAA Civil Rights Office within 45 CALENDAR DAYS of the alleged discrimination to preserve your rights under the law.  You can reach the Civil Rights Office by dialing 301-713-0500.
