Thursday, September 30, 2021 – 10:00am – 12:00pm
You are invited to a webinar featuring Lynn Clements, Director of Audit and HR Services for Berkshire Associates.
Lynn Clements, Esq. of Berkshire Associates will be offering her analysis of some of the most important takeaways from the 2021 ILG National Conference, held in-person and virtually from Nashville, Tennessee this year.
What trends kept reappearing throughout the conference agenda? What were the key compliance initiatives that employers should focus on?
Attendees can expect to learn about:
• OFCCP and EEOC enforcement priorities
• Pending regulatory, policy and audit updates, and how you should prepare for any changes
• EEO and DEI trends to watch
• A list of compliance action items for your organization during the Biden administration
This information session will benefit not only the Affirmative Action professional, but many of your colleagues in HR, EEO and DEI. Share this invitation to keep them all informed!
Earlier this year, the U.S. Census Bureau began releasing new data tables that federal contractors use to conduct availability analysis when determining whether to establish placement goals for women and minorities as part of their affirmative action programs (AAPs).
Now that the 2014-2018 EEO Tabulation is ready to use for AAP development, OFCCP has posted a notice on its website requiring federal contractors to use the 2014-2018 EEO Tabulation for AAPs developed on or after January 1, 2022. Frequently Asked Questions are also available on OFCCP’s website.
OFCCP will hold training for contractors covering basic information – such as what the EEO Tabulation is, how it is developed, why it is necessary to use – as well as detailed information on how to navigate the tabulation along with a live demonstration. Be on the lookout for more information on the training dates soon.

As the NILG Board President, I wanted to personally reach out to invite you to attend our 2021 National Conference taking place August 1-4th in Nashville, Tennessee. Last year was tough on us all, and as we head toward some form of normalcy, we would love for everyone to join us in the Country Music Capital of the World for much-needed time to learn and reconnect with one another. New this year, we are offering a virtual, live broadcast option for those who are understandably not ready for in-person events. Rest assured if you choose to attend in-person that we will be taking all necessary precautions to host a safe and health-positive experience for all.
However you choose to attend, we promise to provide a highly educational and entertaining conference experience that is invaluable to your professional development efforts. Our recently announced program is packed with knowledgeable and experienced presenters ranging from practitioners and experts to government agency officials and inspirational keynotes, including HBO Vice President of Strategy and Education Carla Moore, and American Country Music Songwriter Chuck Cannon. I encourage you to check out our full conference agenda to see what we have in store.
We have a few different registration packages at varying price points, so please also take a look at those and please note that early-bird rates end on Friday, May 21st, so I recommend registering now to secure the best price, and don’t forget to book your hotel rooms as we are anticipating those sell out early. We currently have 60% of registrants expecting to be in Nashville. Given the changing vaccine situation and travel restrictions, you will have up to 30 days before the conference to identify whether to attend live or virtually. To help you justify your conference attendance, there are several resources at your disposal:
If you would like to show additional support, I welcome your ILG to sponsor the conference. Our team has crafted smaller packages that allow for additional visibility and awareness.
Thank you for your continued contributions to the federal contractor community, and on behalf of the Board, I thank you for your continued support of the NILG and helping us promote this year’s event to your audience.
In partnership with the National Industry Liaison Group, the Office of Disability Employment Policy (ODEP), Merck, and EARN will share employment expertise and effective employer practices on mental health and wellness in the workplace.
