Jan. 6, 2017: Debra Finney of the EEOC

Kerry’s guest this week is Debra Finney of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission

Debra Finney is the United States Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s Memphis District Outreach & Education Manager. Her 35 years of experience with the EEOC as an Investigator and in her current position make her uniquely qualified to discuss the laws enforced by EEOC.

Finney’s jurisdictional areas include Arkansas, Tennessee and North Mississippi. Finney says that she enjoys her position as Outreach and Education Manager because she travels the district, and the country, interacting with stakeholder groups. Finney not only educates the audience on the laws enforced by EEOC but provides practical application and tips.

A popular speaker at many conferences in and outside of the Memphis district, Finney engages her audiences with a casual, yet informative, style.

In addition to her duties in the Memphis District, Finney is a frequent speaker at national training conferences and is a trainer on national training projects, both

internal and external. She also says that her many travels for work have afforded her an opportunity to explore two other passions; BBQ and blues, which conveniently go hand in hand.
