As an institutional member of HERC, our campus receives access to free professional development webinars led by national experts.

On Thursday, June 29th, 2017 at 12:00PM employees will be able to attend How to Navigate the Intersection of Affirmative Action and Diversity and Inclusion.

Far too often employers (including institutions of higher education) silo their OFCCP compliance efforts from their formal diversity and inclusion initiatives. As a result, these two efforts are sometimes viewed as separate and distinct – a regulatory obligation versus a voluntary initiative. This presentation will focus on how employers can leverage their affirmative action obligations (and, perhaps, analytics) to create or support a robust diversity and inclusion program while side-stepping possible, negative legal consequences. Presented Michelle Duncan, Principal in the Jackson Lewis Affirmative Action & Office of Federal Contract Compliance Program (“OFCCP”) Defense Practice Group.
