Black Employment Program
This program was strengthened through Executive Order 11478, Equal Employment
Opportunity in the Federal Government, which established the EEO Program. It is the
policy of the Federal government to provide equal opportunity in employment to all
individuals regardless of race, color, religion, gender, national origin, disability, or age.
The Black SEP was established to increase the representation of African Americans
throughout the workforce.
