For many federal supervisors, the EEO process is mysterious and foreboding. The only thing more mystifying for supervisors is their role in diversity and inclusion efforts. With this course, FELTG aims to make it less so.
Federal supervisors play a critical role in diversity and inclusion and the EEO process. FELTG’s experienced instructors describe that role in detail and provide specific guidance of how to handle each step along the way. Plus, we provide details for advisors on how to best work with supervisors throughout the process, to help your agency avoid costly mistakes.
- Promote Diversity and Inclusion in your unit.
- Understand the Federal EEO complaint process and how the supervisor may be involved during each step
- Identify the protected categories upon which a discrimination claim may be made
- Document your workplace actions so they can withstand frivolous or non-meritorious allegations of discrimination and harassment
This program runs from 12:30 pm – 4:00 pm eastern each day, with a 30-minute break from 2:00 – 2:30 eastern.
This program meets the President’s mandate to provide training on diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility in the Federal workplace.
