Seena Foster, award winning author and Partner of the discrimination consulting firm, Title VI Consulting, LLP in Alexandria, Virginia, provides expertise and guidance in the areas of compliance and civil rights investigations to state and local governments, colleges and universities, private companies, and non-profit organizations. To that end, she offers one hour Webinars, full-day and half-day in-person training sessions, and mediation services addressing a variety of types of discrimination such as racial discrimination, sex discrimination, disability discrimination, age discrimination, and religious discrimination. The federal law on discrimination is complex and affects our workplaces as well as the delivery of our federally funded programs and activities. Her book, "Civil Rights Investigations Under the Workforce Investment Act and Other Title VI Related Laws: From Intake to Final Determination", has been described as an “eye-opening” reading experience and a “stand-alone” training resource. Ms. Foster’s resources and materials are designed to support the work of civil rights and discrimination professionals in the public and private sectors. Her training in the areas of compliance and complaint investigations has been described as "dynamic", "hitting the nail on the head", "well-organized", and "informative."
In 2007, Ms. Foster was certified as a mediator by the Virginia Supreme Court and later obtained "Federal Workplace Mediation" certification through the Northern Virginia Mediation Service. Presently, she volunteers at Carpenter's Shelter in Alexandria, Virginia and serves on its Development Committee. In addition, Ms. Foster serves on the Economic Opportunities Commission for Alexandria, Virginia, which addresses availability of housing and jobs for economically disadvantaged persons. And, she is a member of the Discrimination Law and Human Rights Law Committees of the International Bar Association. Finally, in November 2011, Ms. Foster was selected as a lifetime member of the Cambridge Who's Who among Executives, Professionals, and Entrepreneurs based on her accomplishments, talents, and knowledge in the area of civil rights (see www.seenafoster.com).
