“I am very excited to have a team from DLA Disposition Services here,” said Stephen Karanja, EEO manager for the Battle Creek VA Medical Center.  ‘By having this team building training which going to improve the care that we provide to veterans it makes it all come together when we work together and make a better country and better nation.”


DLA team member Stacy Marsala provided 4 Lenses training. The program is a personality assessment analysis that helps organizations build on an individual’s natural talents. Additional training included EEO Multigenerational presented by DLA’s Angela Tabron.


Al Hight, Disposition Services’ EEO director, said this was not only a great opportunity for the VA to get the needed training but for his team to reach out to other federal agencies in the area and create partnerships.
