    The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights will hold a public briefing to examine the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission's (EEOC) enforcement efforts to combat workplace sexual harassment across the federal government, including the frequency of such claims and findings of harassment, the resources dedicated to preventing and redressing harassment, and the impact and efficacy of these enforcement efforts. The briefing will also examine agency-level practices to address sexual harassment at the U.S. Department of State and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Commissioners will hear from current and former government officials, academic and legal experts, advocates, and individuals who have experienced harassment.

    This briefing is open to the public. We will offer an open comment session in which members of the public will be able to address the Commission; detailed information, including on registering for a five-minute speaking slot, can be viewed here.

    The event will also live-stream. (Information subject to change.) There will also be a public call-in line (listen-only): 1-800-682-9934, conference ID: 912-1312.
