Tackling An Affirmative Action Plan: Good Faith Efforts & Narrative

When:  Oct 31, 2017 from 2:00 PM to 2:30 PM (ET)
Federal contractors are all too familiar with the complexities and challenges with which they are presented. However, when you are trying to gain an educational foundation of how, what and why, you need an OFCCP Compliance primer course to make sense of it all. Look no further! We recognize that regardless of where you are in your career path, additional education and insight can help propel you forward in your career and expand your skill set.

As part of our DE Compliance 101 series, we’ll continue to provide the basic framework of an Affirmative Action Plan (AAP) and the importance of each component when tied to your federal contractor obligations. Join Jen Bernhardt, Director, Member Engagement, as she will address the six essential components of an AAP–Organizational Profile, Job Group Analyses, Availability, Utilization, Placement Goals and Good Faith Efforts.

The fifth installment of this series begins Tuesday, October 31 at 2:00 PM EDT and will explore the good faith efforts and narrative portion of an AAP, focusing on:

• What are good faith efforts?
• Defining the gray area and what is mutually understood by federal contractors and the OFCCP
• The steps federal contractors need to take to employ and promote minorities and women in their establishments
• What is the AAP narrative?
• Common pitfalls to avoid once a placement goal is identified–including examples
• How to demonstrate and document your narrative; as well as the importance of including specifics

While the topic of writing and developing an AAP is complex, these webinars are not. Each segment has formatted into bite-sized learning so you can gain a clear understanding of each component. This webinar is scheduled for a short 30 minutes (20 minutes of content; 10 minutes of questions).

Join us as we share some background information needed to understand how good faith efforts and the narrative fit into your affirmative action planning. During the webinar, ask questions via social media using the #DEcompliance101 and we’ll answer them live during the webinar, and also post answers in our Member Community.
