Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Management Directive 715-01 (MD-715) requires federal agencies to report on their efforts to establish and maintain an effective equal employment opportunity (EEO) program that ensures equal employment opportunities for all employees and applicants for employment, regardless of:

  • Sex (including pregnancy, gender identity, and sexual orientation);
  • Age;
  • Race;
  • National origin;
  • Color;
  • Religion;
  • Disability status;
  • Protected genetic information (such as medical conditions or family medical history); and
  • Prior EEO activities.
