Meet Leticia Ericson of the Lab’s Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action Office (EEO/AA). The office works to prevent and protect Lab community members from discrimination and ensure their access to equal opportunities. The Lab’s EEO/AA program also oversees Title IX reporting requirements, which includes domestic abuse, sexual harassment, and sexual violence. An increase in domestic violence is an issue that has surfaced as a result of the COVID-19 quarantine. In this 3Q4, Ericson discusses the issue and ways to be vigilant in helping reduce the risk of harm.
