Rachel See has spent over two decades at the intersection of law, technology and civil rights. Throughout her career in the private and public sector, she has led policy, litigation, and operational initiatives in both the federal government and the private sector.

As Senior Counsel and Vice Chair of the People Analytics Practice Group at Seyfarth Shaw, Rachel leverages her extensive policy and enforcement experience, along with a technologist’s perspective on driving change and managing legal risk to help her clients address the complex issues at the intersection of artificial intelligence, law, and government regulation.

Rachel spent over 12 years in public service, leading policy, enforcement, and operational initiatives at both the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and the National Labor Relations Board. She previously served as an EEOC Commissioner’s Senior Counsel for AI and Algorithmic Bias, where she led initiatives emphasizing the applicability of employment discrimination laws to the use of artificial intelligence (AI) and working to educate lawyers and human resources professionals regarding the applicability of civil rights laws to AI and other technologies. Her previous roles at the EEOC included being the EEOC’s Acting Executive Officer, a Special Assistant to the EEOC Chair, and the EEOC’s Assistant General Counsel for Technology.

At the National Labor Relations Board, in addition to representing the agency in its response to complex Congressional oversight requests, Rachel led the NLRB General Counsel’s nationwide subpoena-enforcement program in high-profile joint-employer litigation against McDonald’s and other high-profile enforcement matters.

Before entering government service, Rachel spent a decade in private practice at AmLaw 200 law firms, where she gained jury trial and other complex civil litigation experience and achieved national recognition as an expert in cutting-edge electronic discovery issues.

Rachel received her undergraduate degree from Yale University and her law degree from the Duke University School of Law. She is only admitted to practice law in Ohio. She is not admitted to practice law in the District of Columbia, and practices there under supervision of members of the DC Bar.
