Equal Employment Opportunity, Affirmative Action and Diversity & Inclusion

Program Overview:

This webinar will focus on the history, differences and overlaps between three terms that are sometimes used interchangeably in the HR world.  Diving into the details of the legal push and pull that separates EEO and AA, and the research that is leading sophisticated organizations to strategically integrate diversity and inclusion into their overarching business strategy for increased market share and profitability.  Whether your organization is subject to affirmative action obligations or not, you won’t want to miss this opportunity to understand how the initiatives you are already leading can help meet your 2015 business goals.

Participants Will Learn:

  • What circumstances create federal contractor status and trigger Affirmative Action obligations;
  • The difference between Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action;
  • The benefits of developing a Diversity and Inclusion strategy from your organization’s strategic plan;
  • How to track data, expenditures, and efforts to maximize the ROI on each for all three of these constructs.
