Joanna has served as the on-site expert for adverse impact, validation, quality of hire, and employment analytics. She also has familiarity with implementation and analysis of organizational development programs such as job satisfaction, quality of work life programming, and organizational justice.

Working in the field of industrial and organizational psychology since 2006, Joanna writes articles on current OFCCP events which are distributed to the contractor community through the OFCCP Blog Spot. In addition, Joanna creates online web trainings for Federal contractors and subcontractors, presents webinars/teleconferences on OFCCP regulations, and prepares white papers, all available or released by DCI or the OFCCP Institute.
