WASHINGTON (Legal Newsline) —The U.S. Equal Employment Commission (EEOC) announced Oct. 30 it has appointed two career federal employees to major managerial positions within the agency.
The two employees will take on roles in the Senior Executive Service (SES), a federal government program that allows civil service employees to work just below the top presidential appointees at various governmental agencies.
Carol R. Miaskoff joined the agency as an associate legal counsel, and Samuel Christopher (Chris) Haffer joined as chief data officer and director of the Office of Research, Information and Planning.
"I have been privileged to contribute to the EEOC's important mission and to work with its knowledgeable and committed staff,” Miaskoff said. “I look forward to the agency's continued work to implement our nation's commitment to equal employment opportunity for all workers."
"High-quality, privacy-protected data are an incredible asset that helps the agency provide reliable, important information to the public,” Haffer said. “As chief data officer and director of the Office of Research, Information and Planning, I look forward to collaborating with my colleagues, employers and other stakeholders to streamline reporting, explore new ways to use data more efficiently, and create state-of-the-art information products."
