The public is urged to attend the open session of the meeting. The full agenda of matters scheduled for consideration at the meeting are as followed:

The "Best" practices report is the summation of the Task Force chaired by Commissioner Reginald E. Jones. The Task Force was asked to study and identify various EEO programs used by companies around the country that meet their business priorities as well as their EEO and diversity objectives. The report is intended to provide assistance to employers, especially smaller and mid-sized companies, by describing some initiatives used by other companies in the areas of: Recruitment and Hiring; Promotion and Career Advancement; Terms and Conditions; Termination and Downsizing; Alternative Dispute Resolution; Management Commitment and Accountability; and Other policies. This latter category includes programs or practices not readily identifiable in the previous six groups or where there is an overlap between or among groups.
