EPA Office of Environmental Justice Seeks New Director

Apply Today. The U.S. EPA is seeking a new Director for its Office of Environmental Justice. Office of Environmental Justice Director Barry E. Hill announced his departure in March 2007.

OEJ consists of a professional staff of fifteen. It functions as a matrix organization around three major areas, each managed by an Associate Director. These areas are: Policy Development and Inter/Intra-Agency Coordination; Outreach; and Administration and Resources Management.

The Office of Environmental Justice (OEJ) provides a central point for the Agency to address environmental and human health concerns in minority communities and/or low-income communities--a segment of the population which has been disproportionately exposed to environmental harms and risks. OEJ works to address this issue through a number of initiatives that emphasize building both external and internal networks. OEJ works within EPA to ensure that the Agency considers environmental justice issues by working with individual program offices and with the regions.
