EEO Basics for Transit Supervisors and Managers

The DOT’s Urban Mass Transit Agency (UMTA) issued Circular 4704.1 in 1988 requiring the development of an EEO Program for transit authorities meeting both an employee threshold and dollar threshold of direct Federal assistance and capital investments. The Federal Transit Administration (UMTA’s successor agency) reissued that Circular in 2016 and became effective on October 1, 2017. The revised Circular (4704.1A) now requires transit supervisors and managers receive EEO training within 90 days of entrance into the position—though no specific training was identified. This webinar, “EEO Basics for Transit Supervisors and Managers,” was developed by THOMAS HOUSTON associates in conjunction with Sotherlund Consulting to meet this requirement and focuses directly on transit authority management’s EEO responsibilities found in the Circular.
