Equal Employment Opportunity, Diversity and Leadership Conference set for Oct. 24-25

The Kentucky Personnel Cabinet will present the 32nd annual Equal Employment Opportunity, Diversity and Leadership Conference Oct. 24-25 at the newly renovated Kentucky International Convention Center in Louisville.

Held each fall, the conference is one of the longest running of its kind in the country, celebrating the diversity represented among the people of the Commonwealth, and serving as a premier source of professional development for those interested in leadership, management, equal employment opportunity, and diversity. The event is expected to draw a cross section of attendees, including practitioners in the areas of human resources, management, law, education, and medicine.

“This conference never disappoints,” said Personnel Cabinet Secretary Thomas Stephens. “In the ever-changing arena of talent management, this is a unique opportunity to exchange ideas, network with colleagues from across the spectrum, and hear from thought-provoking speakers on timely topics impacting us today.”

This year’s event has been expanded in size and scope, and includes pre-conference sessions, workshops in three different areas of interest, and an all-star lineup of presenters from both public and private sector employers. Topics of discussion will include substance abuse in the workplace, bias in hiring, employee engagement, sexual harassment, developing leaders, and much more.

“The increasing number of attendees and interest from varying professions reiterates the importance of these principles and reaffirms our commitment to continuing to elevate them by expanding this venue,” said Chris Johnson, executive director of the Office of Diversity, Equality, and Training.

Certification for HRCI, Society for Human Resource Management, International Public Management Association for Human Resources, Continuing Legal Education, Mental Health, and Mediation Training credits will be applied for and awarded based on the session(s) attended.

More information, including a detailed conference agenda, a full list of speakers and information about how to register is available at eeoconference.ky.gov.
