I. Opening Remarks: “Implementing the Principles of EEO/Affirmative Action”
Introductions and overview of the EEO regulatory landscape.
Presenter: Jo Bennett, Esq., Shareholder, Stevens & Lee; PDTI Chair
II. Contemporary Issues Facing Affirmative Action and /or Diversity Officers in the Workplace
Presenter: Marjorie Powell, J.D., Associate Vice President for Human Resource Services, University of Maryland, Baltimore
In some organizations (higher education, private sector, government) Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity (EO) officers either report to the CEO (Presidents, Chancellors), Human Resources (HR) Provosts or Vice Presidents. There is a perception that unless you report to the CEO or President, AA officers are less effective. So, if that is a perception, is it true? Or does it matter? What are some effective strategies, including getting buy-in? Who is responsible for the implementation of the AAP? During this session, participants will explore establishing accountability for those responsible for implementing the affirmative action program no matter the reporting structure.
III. Implementing the Principles of EEO/Affirmative Action
Leveraging Qualitative and Quantitative Data to Enhance Diversity and Equity Initiatives
Presenter: Inderdeep Chatrath, Ph.D., Office for Institutional Diversity, Duke University
Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity and Diversity officers continue to struggle with developing a sound rationale for diversity, to promote equity and to identify matrices to evaluate progress. In this era of information technology, accountability and changing national landscape, institutional data and a plethora of external information resources are not fully leveraged in making the business case for diversity.
During this session, participants will explore strategies to use qualitative and quantitative data to move beyond the typical compliance framework and to build an inclusive and diverse organizational culture. Insights and practical strategies will be offered for utilizing existing data and institutional documents to augment best practices in areas of recruitment, retention and in moving towards a more equitable work climate.
IV. Casting a Wider Net: Achieving a Thriving Culture through Diversity and inclusion Strategies
Presenter: Yvette A. Hyater-Adams, Diversity Consultant
In this highly interactive workshop, participants will scan their institutions’ readiness to leverage their EEO/AA program into a culture change process for diversity and inclusion (D&I). Learn how to use your influence to help cultivate the best conditions to build a successful strategy that meets your organization’s goals.
· Identify similarities and differences between their organizations’ culture and best practices for building diversity and inclusion strategies
· Analyze EEO/AA plans next to their organizations’ mission, vision and strategic plans
· Examine self-limiting beliefs that may block their ability to influence culture change
· Illustrate what transformational change for D&I could be possible for their organization
