Executive Director - DirectEmployers

Inderdeep Chatrath served as AVP of Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action in the Duke University Office for Institutional Equity for 20 years. Her role was highly influential, and she regularly took on additional responsibilities as the University’s needs changed over time. In addition to ownership of the annual Affirmative Action Plan and internal audit, Inderdeep managed a wide range of research and evaluation studies to guide the evolution of EEO/AA policies, procedures, and investments, then leveraged that data to ensure continued compliance with local, state, and national regulations.  Concurrent with her position at Duke, Inderdeep was engaged by public and private higher education institutions, consulting firms, legal counsel, audit and risk management professionals, and senior HR professionals in all areas of human resources to advise on EEO/AA compliance and develop strategies that promote D/E/I in the workplace.
