Griffin moves into deputy director spot at OPM

The Office of Personnel Management has announced that Christine Griffin has been confirmed in her appointment as deputy director of the agency.

As OPM’s deputy director, Griffin will “play a key role in shaping and managing the federal government’s 1.9 million employees,” the agency said in a statement.

Griffin formerly was a commissioner of the U.S. Equal Opportunity Commission (EEOC), where she was instrumental in shaping workplace enforcement policies. Before her appointment to the EEOC, Griffin served as executive director of the Disability Law Center in Boston from 1996 to 2005.

Griffin has been a vocal supporter of federal workforce diversity, as well as a proponent of women’s rights and the rights of individuals with disabilities. Notably, in June 2006, Griffin launched the Leadership for the Employment of Americans with Disabilities (LEAD) initiative at the EEOC to help managers remedy the significant under employment of people with severe disabilities in the federal government. Details on LEAD are available here.
