The Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) Commission established Management Directive-715 (MD-715) to provide guidance and standards for establishing and maintaining effective and affirmative programs of EEO under Section 717 of Title VII (PART A) and effective affirmative action programs under Section 501 of the Rehabilitation Act (PART B).
Special Emphasis Programs (SEPs) assist federal government agencies to carry out their equal opportunity initiatives. At FAA, SEPs are an integral part of achieving a Model EEO Program through strategic outreach efforts and collaboration. SEPs assist to educate, attract, and retain all groups, including minorities, women and persons with disabilities to enhance the FAA, as an employer of choice. The Office of Civil Rights is responsible for the management of three national programs required by Presidential Executive orders, as well as the Educational Partnership Initiative.
