EEOC Seeks Presenters for 2015 EXCEL Training Conference


How much do you know about EEO? Are you a subject matter expert in issues of equal employment opportunity (EEO) in the public and private sectors?

If so, you should consider applying to be a presenter at the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission’s (EEOC) 18th annual EXCEL Training Conference this summer in Washington, DC. The date for EXCEL 2015 will be announced soon.

EXCEL stands for Examining Conflicts In Employment Laws.

This year’s EXCEL will be extra special because it coincides with the 50th anniversary of the EEOC, which opened its doors for business on July 2, 1965 — one year after passage of the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title VII of which created the EEOC with a noble mission to prevent and eradicate employment discrimination.

EEOC recently issued a call for presenters.  The agency is seeking EEO professionals and industry consultants; professional speakers and trainers; and industry suppliers who can expand the knowledge base of attendees by focusing on best practices or new trends.

EXCEL helps attendees gain knowledge, ideas, tools and know-how to help them excel in their jobs and bring added value to their organizations.

Sounds interesting. If you don’t post about EXCEL again, please at least message me with dates when they come out…assuming you will be in the know. Thanks for sharing.
