Rosyln D. Brown

Before retiring from the government, Roslyn Brown was the Director Intelligence Community EEO and Diversity Outreach for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI). Roslyn’s federal civil rights career spans over 30 years starting at the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) as an investigator of individual and systemic class wide complaints. Currently Roslyn travels nationwide as a senior consultant and trainer with an expertise in civil rights, alternate dispute resolution, diversity management, and program development.

Roslyn has a Master in Public Administration Degree from George Washington University, and has been a certified Mediator for the District of Columbia since 1992, and attended Harvard University’s Program on Negotiations.  In 1999, she was one of the co-architects of the Department of the Treasury’s Shared Neutrals Program that has averaged a Treasury-wide resolution rate of 80% on EEO and workplace dispute issues each year since its founding.  While at the IRS, she developed a “Guide to Well-Written Settlement Agreements” for IRS mediators that found a wider audience Treasurywide, and has been in demand as a training tool at other federal and national conferences.  In 2010, her book, Executing Enforceable Settlement Agreements: A Guide for Federal Agencies, was published by LRP Publications.

Additionally—capitalizing on her subject-matter expertise—she had three (3) articles published over the years:
