In today’s world for education leaders, it’s critical that board members and superintendents have a solid understanding about traps that await their school divisions when it comes to employment discrimination charges filed with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). A strategic and tactical grasp of how things work—and don’t work—in what can be a demanding experience in dealing with EEOC charges can make the difference for the entire organization. In this session, you’ll get a foundation and advanced lessons from an experienced legal counsel and human resources professional, who draw on their individual and collective years of managing the risks and finding opportunities even with the very large federal government agency which investigates discrimination complaints under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act. While the session will include presentations and real-life examples, it will offer interactive exchanges that provide ample opportunity for questions and discussion at both the governance and management levels.
