Learn how to achieve diversity, equity, and inclusion while remaining compliant.
Many companies have publicly committed to increase representation of African Americans in the workforce, specifically in management positions. As a response to these public announcements, the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs advised many of those companies that these commitments indicate application of race-based selection processes and has asked them to illustrate that the actions they are taking aren’t comprised of unlawful race-based practices. This white paper discusses the OFCCP’s concern and how companies can broaden diverse representation in the workplace without while staying in compliance.
