 AA Officers

The Affirmative Action Officer (AAO) or AAO approved designee is crucial in implementing and ensuring the success of all Equal Employment Opportunity/Affirmative Action (EEO/AA) programs, policies and procedures.  The roles and responsibilities of AA Officers are derived from Wisconsin Statute Chapter 230, Wisconsin Administrative Code ER-43, and rules and guidelines established by the Division of Personnel Management, Bureau of Equity and Inclusion.
