On December 10, 2009, the U.S. Senate’s Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee approved en masse eight persons nominated by President Obama to fill positions at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), the Rehabilitation Services Administration at the Department of Education and the Women’s Bureau at the U.S. Department of Labor and several other agencies.

 The approved nominees at the EEOC and Department of Labor are:

 • Jacqueline A. Berrien, of New York, to be Chairperson of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

• Victoria A. Lipnic, of Virginia, to be a Commissioner of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

• Chai R. Feldblum, of Maryland, to be a Commissioner of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

• P. David Lopez, of Arizona, to be General Counsel of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

• Sara Manzano-Diaz, of Pennsylvania, to be Director of the Women’s Bureau, Department of Labor.

 The nominees now move to the full Senate for confirmation.
