EXCEL 2012: July 31-Aug. 2, Dallas: Expert Training on EEO, ADR, Diversity Management

15th Annual EEOC EXCEL 2012

Examining Conflicts In Employment Laws (EXCEL)

*** July 31 – Aug. 2 ***

Dallas – Sheraton Hotel


How much do you know about and understand equal employment opportunity (EEO) and diversity/inclusion within the Federal workforce?

Do you know how to effectively manage and work with all employees regardless of race, color, sex, age, religion, national origin and disability?

Are all employees in your office and agency able to compete and advance on a level playing field?

Is your direct inner circle or “brain trust” comprised of people who look and think like you, with similar backgrounds and life experiences?


With today’s Federal workforce — and the country — becoming increasingly more diverse and inclusive, it’s more important than ever to have a solid understanding of EEO and diversity management. In fact, understanding EEO is a business imperatives for Feds, especially supervisors and managers. Ditto for diversity management.

Did you know, for example, that Hispanics/Latinos are the highest minority population in America, yet are under-represented in the Federal workforce compared to the Civilian Labor Force?

Did you know Asians are the fastest growing minority population nationwide, but are mostly clustered into certain Federal job categories?

Did you know that people with disabilities represent less than 2% of the entire Federal workforce, a percentage virtually unchanged for decades? For people with targeted (severe) disabilities, the figures are even worse.

Did you know that most minority Federal employees are under-represented within the Senior Executive Service (SES) compared to their Federal workforce participation rates overall?

Have you ever directly worked with or managed a Federal employee who is lesbian, gay, bi-sexual or transgender (LGBT)?

Do you know about and understand the new minority-majority paradigm in America?

Do you harbor implicit or unconscious biases/stereotypes toward people who are different than you?

Think carefully and objectively about these questions. Then ask yourself if you or your team can benefit from expert EEO and diversity training to better do your job, better serve your country, and become certified in EEO and ADR requirements?

If your answer is yes, EXCEL 2012 is for you!
