The U.S Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) announced today the opening of registration for the annual EXCEL (Examining Conflicts in Employment Laws) training conference. The virtual event, to be held August 23-25, 2022, provides the federal and private employer community tools and strategies to address emerging issues in equal employment opportunity (EEO) law.
Marking a milestone anniversary, the theme for this year’s conference is “25 Years of Excellence.” EEOC Chair Charlotte A. Burrows and Office of Personnel Management (OPM) Director Kiran Ahuja will open the conference with a fireside chat to discuss the Biden Administration’s whole-of-government approach to equity and the future of work, while highlighting the EEOC and OPM’s efforts to promote diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility in America’s workplaces. The conference will feature a wide range of workshops on ongoing and emerging issues such as Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Accessibility (DEIA); pay equity; racial and systemic discrimination; civil rights and the pandemic; retaliation; and artificial intelligence and algorithmic decision-making.
The EXCEL conference is geared toward EEO managers, supervisors, practitioners, HR professionals, attorneys, ADR specialists and other interested parties in the federal and private sector. It features more than 30 interactive workshops, virtual networking opportunities and a platform to engage in discussions on EEO hot topics.
Registration for this much-anticipated three-day virtual training conference is $800 per person. Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), Human Resource Certification Institute (HRCI), Federal EEO Investigator, and Federal EEO Counselor Refresher credits will be provided. Additionally, application will be made with the Virginia State Bar for Continuing Legal Education (CLE) credit and support will be provided for conference attendees to apply for CLE credit in other states.
