Yang becomes the first Asian American ever to head the EEOC.  She has served as vice chair since April and has been on the Commission since 2013.

She replaces outgoing Chair Jacqueline Berrien.

Prior to joining the Commission, she was an attorney with the firm Cohen Milstein Sellers & Toll PLLC where she represented 1.6 million women in a class action case against Wal-Mart, the largest sex discrimination class action suit in history. She’s also worked at the National Employment Law Project to enforce the workplace rights of garment workers.

The EEOC is charged with addressing issues of alleged discrimination in the workplace.
