Service from the Outside: Why I resigned as State EEO Coordinator
On January 19, 2018, I resigned as the State of Ohio’s Equal Employment Opportunity Coordinator and deputy director of the Ohio Department of Administrative Services. While my time of public service ended, my service to historically underutilized businesses didn't—and continues to this day.
As the State EEO Coordinator during Governor John R. Kasich's administration, I had the honor of leading the state in service to underutilized businesses, which resulted in the Minority Business Enterprise program meeting its 15 percent spending goal with MBE-certified companies for the first time since the program was created in 1980. While hitting the goal was memorable, however, the most meaningful part of the accomplishment was what it made clear about what is yet possible in the MBE and other programs in the years to come.
