The NCRLC has been charged with developing active and consistent approaches to civil rights and Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) for Veterinary Services and interfacing with (EEO) Advisory Committees.
The Committee will be expected to assist in monitoring and evaluating Veterinary Services' progress in implementing the Department's civil rights goals and objectives and the Veterinary Services' Civil Rights Strategic Plan. The group will also assist in developing civil rights and EEO initiatives that will be beneficial throughout the organization.
The expected outcomes of the NCRLC are a better work place for all Veterinary Services employees, reduction in the number of formal complaints, and increased services and opportunities to underrepresented groups and communities.
