NILG 2020 National Conference

A Vision for the Future

The NILG 2020 National Conference is at National Harbor’s Gaylord Hotel, a short boat ride away from Washington DC.  Our conference is the place to be for those involved in the affirmative action, equal employment opportunity, and diversity & inclusion fields.  We bring together industry experts and government representatives with human resources, compliance, legal and diversity professionals to discuss the latest issues and trends involving government compliance and workplace equality. We will host speakers from a variety of agencies including the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) as well as from the Office of Disability Employment Policies (ODEP) and Veterans’ Employment & Training Service (VETS) among others as well as leading voices from the AA/EEO/Diversity communities.

In today’s fast-paced organizations, compliance is often an afterthought. Yet compliance specialists have been using data analytics since the inception of Executive Order 11246 in 1965.  For large and small organizations, this data, if used and presented correctly, can have significant value.  For example, it can help the HR team recognize the changing demographics of talent pipelines and help the HR team identify needs for training managers on current and future challenges.  At the NILG 2020 National Conference, understanding data analytics will be just one part of a wide-ranging look at a changing workplace.  The NILG 2020 National Conference will be THE place to understand how work in the affirmative action/EEO/diversity arena can help shape employers’ vision for the future.

The NILG 2020 National Conference is committed to working with and providing reasonable accommodations to individuals with physical and mental disabilities. If you need special assistance while navigating this website or registering for the conference please e-mail or call 602-750-0305.
