Session 2: Recruiting Essentials for a Diverse Talent Pipeline

In this webinar, we’ll help you kick start your diversity outreach and save you valuable time by providing you with the “must-have” resources that are essential to any recruiter’s outreach strategy. We’ll show you the variety of options that you have – from government workforce agencies to non-government community-based organizations  – who are present in every major city across the country who provide job placement, career search, job training, and job coaching services to individuals with disabilities, veterans, minorities, women, the LGBTQ population, older workers, and other protected classes, that you can partner with to refer qualified candidates to you and amplify your diversity recruiting efforts. We’ll also discuss little-known workforce programs to incentivize employers to hire targeted populations, and help you secure buy-in from your management team.

Interactive Breakout Sessions

Online Compliance Concerns When Adapting to COVID-19

Let’s have a break-out session to review and discuss possible online compliance concerns for federal contractors. As we adapt to COVID-19, we will need to ensure that we have a consistent and communicated process geared towards applicant tracking, Section 503 online accessibility, and many more! Are you ready? If not, let’s get there together!

Best Practices for a Compliant Workforce Reduction

When a change in business requires downsizing of the workforce, it is important for employers and federal contractors to maintain compliance as they conduct those reductions. Federal contractors especially need to be mindful of their selection processes and decisions to ensure they do not result in adverse impact against women and minorities. This breakout session will provide some best practices in carrying out a compliant workforce reduction.

OFCCP Expectations in Dispositioning

The use of accurate dispositioning is critical in a compliance evaluation.  In this session we will discuss the expectations of OFCCP when reviewing your applicant process and how to implement a compliant applicant process using step specific dispositioning.

Session 6: D&I 2020 and Beyond

There is no shortage of diversity and inclusion-related training and expectations for organizations today. The problem with a lot of these programs is that they happen once and the effects of the training start to wear off. In addition, we are now in the midst of a pandemic and workplaces have to be more agile and prepared for constant change. Diversity and inclusion work is now more important than ever. This session will outline major themes of D&I that make an organization successful and will discuss best practices as well as how to implement these changes strategically.
