Because of its popularity, this recurring Webinar provides an informative overview of how to comply with the nondiscrimination and equal opportunity provisions of federal civil rights laws that apply to the administration, oversight, and delivery process for federally-assisted programs and activities. In this Webinar, we’ll focus our attention on Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, the Age Discrimination Act of 1975, and the disability-related nondiscrimination laws at Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and Title II of the Americans With Disabilities Act. We will touch on a variety of compliance-related issues such as how far these laws extend, what is required for compliance (including a discussion of reasonable accommodation, environmental justice, and limited English proficiency), the concepts of assurances and taglines, differences between program complaints and discrimination complaints, harassment and hostile environment, and data collection.

Developed for:
Whether you are new, or need refresher training, this Webinar is designed for state and local government officials from any size agency or department, including equal opportunity officers, ADA coordinators, disability specialists, Title VI liaisons, agency heads, contracting and procurement personnel, and compliance officials. Similarly, management and equal opportunity professionals for private companies and other organizations that contract with state and local governments to operate federally-assisted programs and activities will find this Webinar useful. Whether you receive funding directly from a federal agency, or indirectly through a state or local agency, the laws discussed in the Webinar apply to you.
