 Office of Equal Employment Opportunity, Diversity, and Inclusion

Welcome to EEODI

NTSB’s mission success requires every employee to be a valued, motivated, and highly functioning team member. EEODI plays a critical role in making that happen.

We do so by helping NTSB to eliminate EEO barriers and workplace conflicts that can diminish trust, impair teamwork, compromise safety and ultimately undermine excellence.
