The Institute offers members an innovative and cost-effective approach to manage a new generation of affirmative action and EEO regulatory and compliance issues. The Institute provides coordination and knowledge transfer among the staffs performing the compliance, compensation, staffing and legal functions within a collaborative and innovative problem-solving framework.

  • Membership in The Institute is limited to federal contractor private sector organizations.
  • The Institute membership is comprised of Federal contractor private sector organizations. Each organization with its own unique Employer Identification Number— also referred to as a Federal Tax Identification Number—must apply for membership, and each organization must designate one Point of Contact (“POC”) as the company representative to receive a monthly membership newsletter, interim development alerts and a membership website username for accessing member resources. Non-Federal contractor law firms and EEO/AA consulting firms are not eligible to apply for The Institute membership.

What Makes the Institute Different?

  • Integrated Cross-Functional Approach: The Institute is distinguished from other federal contractor networks in that it utilizes an integrated cross-functional approach to compliance. A single corporate membership allows a member company to leverage its limited compliance resources by including as members four representatives – one each from the compliance, compensation, staffing and legal functions — to participate in an employer group with cross-industry peers.
  • Faculty: The members of The Institute faculty are the leading experts in the nation in affirmative action and EEO compliance based on their first-hand knowledge and expertise acquired as a result of representing clients in thousands of OFCCP audits. Having the nation’s most experienced and knowledgeable experts on OFCCP compliance as faculty allows The Institute to provide members with the most up-to-date information on the activities of the agency, along with practical compliance tips.
  • Advocacy: The Institute plays an important role as an advocate on behalf of its members in all OFCCP proposed regulatory and policy initiatives with an approach that puts members first. As appropriate, we advocate on members’ behalf with regulatory agencies, legislative representatives and oversight agencies in the White House.

Member benefits include:

  • Monthly Member Roundtable with The Institute co-chairs
  • Advocacy on OFCCP issues of policy and regulatory importance to federal contractors, as well as in-person opportunities for members to interact with OFCCP personnel
