Workshop 2

Changes Ahead for Race and Ethnicity Classification
Mike Eastman, Center for Workplace Compliance

The federal standards for collecting race and ethnicity standards have been largely unchanged for decades. But an ongoing White House review could significantly change how employers collect and report demographic data. After attending this session, attendees will be able to: (1) identify the most significant potential revisions; (2) understand the process by which proposed revisions will be considered and implemented; and (3) assess the impact of potential revisions on employer EEO/AA/DEI Programs.
