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 equality. A single corporate membership allows a member company to leverage its limited equality resources by including as members four representatives – one each from the equality, 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 equality 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 equality as faculty allows The Institute to provide members with the most up-to-date information on the activities of the agency, along with practical equality 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.
