Jackson Lewis P.C.

On January 19, 2021, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced that Kimberly S.L. Essary has been appointed as Deputy Chief Data Officer within the agency’s Office of Enterprise Data and Analytics (OEDA).

Essary’s appointment expands OEDA’s existing executive leadership, further illustrating the EEOC and OEDA’s mission to build a 21st century data and analytics organization. In this senior executive role, Essary is expected to manage the full range of program activities within OEDA.

First joining the EEOC as a career attorney-advisor in 2009, Essary’s appointment is a testament to her years of experience serving in high-level roles at the EEOC and other related governmental departments. Essary has served as OEDA’s Deputy Director and Senior Counsel since 2018 and played an integral part in its development and creation, as well as the creation of EEOC’s Data Governance Board. During her tenure, Essary also has served as a federal data fellow in the U.S. government’s Federal Data Strategy Team – a group of cross-disciplined data professionals tasked with developing the government-wide Federal Data Strategy.

Speaking on her appointment, Essary said, “I am honored to have the opportunity to serve in this new role. I look forward to building upon the agency’s work in recent years to modernize our data and analytics capabilities and to better serve the American people through data-driven decision-making.”
