Former EEOC Chair Jenny Yang: “If you want to change the system, you should first understand how it works.”
Heller News Release
January 25, 2018
Just days removed from finishing her term as the chair of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), Jenny Yang came to the Heller School for Social Policy and Management to discuss what it was like to serve through the first year of an administration that didn’t appoint her, the importance of changing workplace culture around sexual harassment in light of the #MeToo movement and the new challenges of protecting workers' fractured work environments.
Her talk was part of the third installment of the Conversations with the Dean series, where Dean David Weil invites public figures, policymakers and advocates in social justice fields to have wide-ranging conversations with students, faculty and staff.
