EEOC.gov – Modernized Experience & Performance on Drupal 8

Presenters: bencoit

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is responsible for enforcing federal laws that make it illegal to discriminate against a job applicant or an employee because of the person's race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy, gender identity, and sexual orientation), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information.

With more than 10 million unique visitors to EEOC’s website each year, EEOC.gov is a key channel for communicating EEOC’s mission, vision, and disseminating critical information.

Ten-plus years since its last platform update, EEOC.gov recently underwent a complete redesign and re-platform to better serve its constituents by moving to Drupal 8 on Microsoft Azure. In this session, you’ll hear from the EEOC.gov build team to learn about how they successfully:

  • Migrated over 160,000 pieces of content
  • Significantly decreased the time it takes to post updates
  • Implemented the latest US Web Design System, improving the site’s accessibility, Spanish-language delivery, and mobile responsiveness
