This year we are thrilled to be honoring EEOC Commissioner Chai Feldblum, in recognition of her work in advancing the civil rights of all Americans. Commissioner Feldblum is the first openly LGBT person to serve on the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and was instrumental in drafting both the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) and the proposed Employment Non-Discrimination Act (ENDA), which would extend workplace protections to ban discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity.

About Commissioner Feldblum
Chai R. Feldblum is one of five Commissioners who make up the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), a bipartisan independent agency responsible for enforcing our nation’s employment civil rights laws. Feldblum was nominated by President Barack Obama and confirmed by the Senate in 2010 for her first term; she was re-nominated for a second term in May 2013, and recently re-confirmed by the Senate.
Prior to her appointment, Feldblum was a Professor of Law at Georgetown University Law Center for over twenty years, teaching in the fields of civil rights law, statutory interpretation and administrative law. Commissioner Feldblum played a leading role in drafting and negotiating the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, as well as the ADA Amendments Act of 2008. She has worked to advance lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights over the past two decades, was one of the original drafters of the Employment Non-Discrimination Act, and is the first openly lesbian Commissioner of the EEOC. In 2003, she founded and led Workplace Flexibility 2010.
Commissioner Feldblum graduated from Barnard College and Harvard Law School and clerked for Judge Frank Coffin of the First Circuit Court of Appeals and for Supreme Court Justice Harry A. Blackmun. You can follow her on Twitter at @chaifeldblum.
