EEOC shares a message about a significant figure in LGBT history
EEOC shares a message about the significance of LGBT month. EEOC Chair Janet Dhillon tells the story of Aaron Copland, born in New York to his Lithuanian Jewish immigrant parents. Copland grew up to become the ultimate American composer. Copland was not only treated as an outsider because of his background, but also because he was gay and not willing to hide his homosexuality from the public. The EEOC is dedicated to protecting the rights of employees to be judged by their talents and accomplishments alone, and not by the nature of whom they love.
