Welcome to the resource archive for the 22nd Annual National Equal Opportunity Training Symposium. The symposium was presented by the Civil Rights Center (CRC) in partnership with the Equal Opportunity Committee of the National Association of State Workforce Agencies, Inc. (NASWA).

The multi-day interactive and educational program featured three plenary sessions and more than 30 workshops. The 2011 conference included trainings on such topics on writing final determinations, conducting investigations, ADAAA, transgender discrimination, violence against women in the workplace, Limited English Proficiency, as well as multiple workshops on disability law, and much, much more.

Highlights included addresses by Secretary of Labor, Hilda Solis; Naomi M. Barry-Pérez, acting director CRC; and U.S. Assistant Attorney General Thomas Perez for the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of Justice.

NASWA is an organization of state administrators of programs and services provided through state workforce systems that receive public financial assistance, including Federal financial assistance.

The information here in these pages was presented during the three-day symposium and is availble here for review and educational purposes.
