AAAED 47TH NATIONAL CONFERENCE – VIRTUAL

SPONSORSHIP

The American Association for Access, Equity and Diversity (AAAAED) would like to invite you to join us as a sponsor at the 47th National Conference – Virtual.

The 47th National Conference will be launched as a virtual event on June 23, 2021 (AAAED Annual Membership Business Meeting) and October 7 - 15, 2021 (Annual Conference and Awards Ceremony), including a two-day Personal Development Program on October 7 - 8, 2021 and a virtual Career Fair on October 9, 2021. Join AAAED online for our National Conference themed. “Reflect, Reset and Move Towards Justice, Equity and Inclusive Excellence.” In 2021, we will also acknowledge the 60th Anniversary of Executive Order 10925 signed by President John F. Kennedy in 1961. Order 10925 is the first order that required equal opportunity and affirmative action in the federal contractor workplace.

In lieu of hosting the 2021 conference in person, circumstances continue to demand that we present the event in a virtual space. Sponsorship of the virtual conference provides a unique opportunity to show your organization’s commitment to diversity, equity, and access in an online venue.

As with the in-person conference, the virtual conference is designed to meet the needs of any person classified as an equal opportunity, affirmative action or diversity professional. This would include equal opportunity directors, EEO specialists, affirmative action officers, human resource professionals, chief diversity officers, diversity and inclusion consultants and leaders, labor and employment lawyers, industrial relations specialists, labor relations advisors, career planning specialists, prospective managers, and other equity and inclusion professionals. The goal is to provide attendees with practical guidance and tips that can be put to use quickly within their organizations. Attendees will hear from agencies such as the OFCCP, EEOC, ODEP, as well as Equal Opportunity Professionals, chief diversity officers, and diversity and inclusion specialists. In addition to two virtual events, in June and October, AAAED will also offer a variety of webinars, masterclasses and "Deeper Dives."

This is a special invitation to your organization to join with others and share your message as a champion of diversity. As a sponsor, you will have direct access to professionals representing local, state, federal government agencies, private sector businesses, and higher education institutions. You will receive excellent exposure of your products and services while being recognized for your active support and community involvement. Moreover, unlike the in-person event, you will be able to share your message and products with a much wider audience that simply needs to login to the conference website instead of traveling.
