With over three decades of experience to her credit, Ms. Victor has excelled as a leader in the field of equal employment opportunity and human resources management. Prior to her current position as executive director of the New York City Equal Employment Practices Commission, she held various executive roles in both government and private sectors, including chief of Equal Employment Opportunity and chief of Human Resources at New Jersey Transit and as well as assistant commissioner of administration at the New Jersey Department of Transportation.

Looking ahead, Ms. Victor aims to continue making a difference in the realm of equal employment opportunity, influencing city policies and advocating for fair employment practices.
