WASHINGTON: The FCC plans to host its first Equal Employment Opportunity Best Practices Summit on Jan. 4.
The all-day panel is part of the agency’s effort to help small, women- and minority-owned communications businesses meet EEO regulations. Achieving viewpoint diversity through outreach and recruitment will be discussed.
The event is from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at commission headquarters. Staffers from the FCC’s Office of Communications Business Opportunities and the Policy Division of the commission’s Media Bureau will summarize relevant regulations and discuss best practices.
