Jenny Yang, Chairwoman, EEOC

About 12 percent of federal employees say they have disabilities. The hiring of more has become a focal point of the Obama administration. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission just wrapped up a month of focusing on this issue, during which it published guidance for agencies, hosted a Twitter town hall and launched a new data collection effort. New EEOC Chairwoman Jenny Yang told Federal News Radio's Emily Kopp the agency is trying to help the government be a model employer of people with disabilities, while it does a better job itself.
