Equal Opportunity (EO) Training

Do you have questions about processing discrimination complaints? Are you having trouble finding equal opportunity (EO) training resources for your staff? Are you interested in learning best practices of other agencies?

Matt Shilling, Equal Opportunity Officer with the State of Michigan will help you answer these questions and more.  This is not a general EEO training but will focus on Federal requirements created by the USDOL for WIOA Programs.
