EEOC Appoints Sivaram Ghorakavi as Deputy Chief Information Officer and Chief Artificial Intelligence Officer

Immediately prior to joining the EEOC, Ghorakavi worked with the National Labor and Relations Board as chief architect and chief data strategist.

EEOC, WASHINGTON, June 2024: Sivaram Ghorakavi has been appointed as the new Deputy Chief Information Officer for the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), effective today. The position is a key Senior Executive Service (SES) managerial position at the agency. Mr. Ghorakavi will also serve as the EEOC’s Chief Artificial Intelligence Officer.

Ghorakavi will manage daily information technology operations and provide professional direction and leadership for technology projects and partnerships. His focus will be to lead agency innovations in technology and implement technology-focused partnerships that will benefit the EEOC’s mission and strategic goals.

“Siva’s appointment reflects our confidence in his demonstrated abilities and experience to help lead our agency in both digital transformation and adapting to emerging technologies, both for internal processes and in our law enforcement efforts,” said EEOC Chair Charlotte A. Burrows.

“I see the Deputy Chief Information Officer as a leader who values creation and drives digital transformation and automation aligned to the EEOC’s critical mission of ensuring equal employment opportunity,” Ghorakavi said. “The success of this role depends on helping people understand both the benefits and risks of using technology, including AI, to ensure it is used in the right places at the right time and in the right amounts to enhance EEOC’s ability to operate effectively and to enforce key workplace protections.”

His appointment to Chief Artificial Intelligence Officer is in accordance with the President’s Executive Order on the Safe, Secure, and Trustworthy Development and Use of Artificial Intelligence (AI), which requires all federal agencies to establish an officer for the use of artificial intelligence. In that role, he will coordinate intra-departmental and cross-agency efforts on AI and adjacent issues. The EEOC has made employment discrimination through the use of technology a priority in its AI and Algorithmic Fairness initiative and strategic enforcement plan.

Ghorakavi spent the last 15 years of his career with the federal government in information technology. Immediately prior to joining the EEOC, Ghorakavi worked with the National Labor and Relations Board as chief architect and chief data strategist. He also served as an information technology portfolio manager at the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.

The EEOC prevents and remedies unlawful employment discrimination and advances equal opportunity for all. More information is available at www.eeoc.gov.
