Fundamentals of Equal Opportunity
Sep 21 @ 10:00 am – 12:00 pm

This workshop satisfies NC States DHPR training requirement.

This course is intended to provide participants with a fundamental understanding of equal opportunity and affirmative action laws and policies. The session will outline relevant laws such as Title VII, Title IX, and the ADA, including the groups protected by each, and it will touch on corresponding institutional policies. Participants will learn how to identify discrimination, harassment, and retaliation, will be exposed to examples of how prohibited conduct may appear in a professional or academic environment, and will highlight relevant case law on these topics. This course also includes a brief explanation of how affirmative action works in both the employment and academic contexts.

Course Objectives:

– To provide participants with an overview and practical understanding of the fundamental principles and requirements of Equal Opportunity laws.
– To expose participants to some of the principles and requirements of federal and state EO laws and NC State policy and procedures governing 1) non-discrimination throughout the life cycle of the employment process from recruitment and selection, to performance management, to terminations, and 2) non-discrimination in academics.
– To help participants recognize and prevent both disparate treatment discrimination and disparate impact discrimination under all of the federally protected categories.

Applied Skills in Equal Opportunity
Oct 13 @ 10:30 am – 12:30 pm

Applied Skills in Equal Opportunity builds on the basics learned in the Fundamentals of Equal Opportunity course. This application-based session offers participants the chance to practice interpreting equal opportunity-related laws, identify prohibited conduct, and enhance their response strategies. The format of this course is designed to promote discussion and questions are encouraged. Case studies will be used to demonstrate concepts, but participants are welcome to develop examples they wish to see addressed.

Course Objectives:

– Recognition and practice the options available for resolving complaints and the procedure OIED uses to ensure complaints are adequately addressed.
– Discussion of measures that each individual can take to help ensure that NC State is a discrimination and harassment-free environment.
– Use real-world cases and scenarios to demonstrate concepts; participants will be encouraged to develop examples they wish to see addressed.

Fundamentals of Equal Opportunity is a prerequisite to this course. Extenuating circumstances: Please contact Erin Morant.

Americans with Disabilities Act
Oct 13 @ 1:30 pm – 3:30 pm

The responsibility for implementing the Americans with Disabilities Acts (ADA) employment provision, Title I, falls largely on unit managers and/or departmental supervisors since they are responsible for recruitment, pre-employment screening, and other workplace practices that affect the hiring and retention of workers with and without disabilities. The purpose of this course is to focus on correct and lawful employment practices that will minimize workplace discrimination for persons with disabilities.
