AAAED 46TH 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 46th National Conference – Virtual.

The 46th National Conference will be launched as a six months’ virtual event beginning on June 23, 2020 and ending on December 30, 2020. Join AAAED online for our National Conference themed “Turning Obstacles into Opportunities.” In 2020, we will also acknowledge the 30th Anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act.

In lieu of hosting the 2020 conference at the historic Washington, DC, Capital Hilton Hotel, circumstances 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 to Washington, DC.

To become a sponsor please review the sponsorship level information below, select your desired sponsorship icon and complete the online forms.

If you have any questions or would like additional sponsorship information including deadlines for submissions please contact AAAED at virtualconference2020@aaaed.org or via phone 202-349-9855 or 866-562-2233 (.
