July 31, 2019



WASHINGTON – Janet Dhillon, Chair of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), has appointed Darrell Graham as district director of the EEOC’s Atlanta District Office, the federal agency announced today.

“I’m very pleased to appoint Darrell Graham to this important position,” Chair Dhillon said. “His formidable skills and experience, both at the EEOC and elsewhere, will be put to good use serving the people of Georgia and South Carolina.” 

Graham began his career with the EEOC in 2006 as a trial attorney in Charlotte, N.C., and later served as an administrative judge from 2009 to 2012. He served as the director of the Richmond Local Office prior to his selection as the deputy district director for the Atlanta District Office in 2014. 

Before joining the EEOC, Graham was an antitrust litigator and later focused exclusively on civil rights litigation. He was also an adjunct professor at the University of Missouri at St. Louis, teaching criminal law courses to upper division students. Darrell received his bachelor’s degree in political science from the University of California at Berkeley and his juris doctorate from Washington Univer­sity School of Law in St. Louis.

Graham is also a veteran of the U.S. Air Force and has received myriad awards and recognition over the years related to his professional, educational and civic endeavors. 

Graham said, “I am firmly committed to continuing the efforts of the EEOC to prevent and remedy employ­ment discrimination. The Atlanta District Office has a dedicated group of employees who understand the unique role the Commission has in addressing employment discrimin­ation matters in the private and public sectors. I am honored to have been selected to lead these efforts and look forward to continued dialogue with all of our external stakeholders in addressing some of the unique challenges posed by both traditional and more modern forms of alleged discriminatory prac­tices.”

The EEOC’s Atlanta District Office has jurisdiction over the state of Georgia and the South Carolina counties of Allendale, Bamberg, Barnwell, Beaufort, Berkeley, Charleston, Colleton, Dorchester, Georgetown, Hampton, Jasper and Williamsburg.  The Atlanta District Office is located at 100 Alabama Street, SW, Suite 4R30, Atlanta, Ga. 30303.  The EEOC also has an office in Savannah, Ga., at 7391 Hodgson Memorial Drive, Suite 200.
