Meet Washington's Civil Rights Advisory Committee Advisor
My name is Eileen Jackson, and I’m an advisor to the Washington State Civil Rights Advisory Committee (CRAC). Human Resources and the CRAC both have responsibilities under Civil Rights and Equal Employment Opportunity regulations, my function is to help coordinate those activities so that the CRAC is aware of HR resources and processes and HR is aware of CRAC activities. I also help facilitate access to HR data, products and resources that can help the Civil Rights Advisory Committee do their work.
I have been with Washington State NRCS for 16 years, first as a clerk on the Spokane State Office Soil Survey Staff, then as a member of the Human Resources staff. I spent 4 years as an active member of the Civil Rights Advisory Committee, which was a wonderful experience. Though my role is more limited as an advisor, I still enjoy being part of this committee, which plays a critical role in improving NRCS operations in Washington State!
