Attorney Seena Foster, Award Winning Author of 'Civil Rights Investigations', Announces New Webinar for Administrators of Federally Assisted Programs

The recurring training webinar titled ‘Compliance With Title VI of the Civil Rights Act and Related Laws: An Overview’, provides information on how to comply with the nondiscrimination and equal opportunity provisions of federal civil rights laws that apply to the administration, oversight, and delivery process for federally assisted programs and activities.

[Washington DC August 21, 2012] Seena Foster, attorney and award winning author of ‘Civil Rights Investigations Under The Workforce Investment Act And Other Title VI-Related Laws’, recently announced the next date for ‘Compliance With Title VI of the Civil Rights Act and Related Laws: An Overview’, an online webinar that provides information on how to comply with the nondiscrimination and equal opportunity provisions of federal civil rights laws that apply to the administration, oversight, and delivery process for federally assisted programs and activities. The webinar will be presented on September 20, 2012 at 1pm EST.

This webinar will be especially helpful to state and local government officials from any size agency or department, including equal opportunity officers, ADA coordinators, disability specialists, Title VI liaisons, agency heads, contracting and procurement personnel, and compliance officials. Management and equal opportunity professionals for private companies and other organizations that contract with state and local governments to operate federally assisted programs and activities can also benefit. Participants who complete the webinar will receive a personalized “Certificate of Completion” documenting the training.

“Government agencies,” stated Ms. Foster, “educational institutions, and private sector companies are under increased pressure to comply with extensive civil rights laws. They must understand what the laws are, what they require, and how to develop and implement measures ensuring compliance to avoid litigation or loss of funding. With a background in civil rights compliance and conducting discrimination complaint investigations, we know how to present information in a way that professionals at any level of an organization will understand and be able to use. These webinars are one avenue of introducing the requirements of civil rights laws in the workplace and in the operation of government programs. During our webinars, we present nuts-and-bolts steps to take for ensuring compliance and we have the expertise to conduct on-site policy reviews and training, which provide more in-depth coverage of civil rights issues. From our experience in the field, it is clear that government agencies, educational institutions, and private sector companies face serious challenges in getting people trained and keeping their leadership, policymakers, and staff up-to-date in the area of civil rights. That’s why they turn to us. This is what we do best.”
