Outreach Efforts

W.L. G. - Mar 08, 2017
Back to Ask the Experts

At my employer, we have internal diversity networks for Veteran’s, Individuals with Disabilities, Females, and minorities. The purpose of these networks is to encourage and support diversity and inclusion for associates that are already employed. From time to time, these networks will participate in public/external events as a way to show support to that community. Would this count as an “outreach” activity for purposes of meeting our obligation or does outreach need to be more recruiting focused? As a Federal Contractor, we are required to show the effectiveness of our efforts and since the external event is not recruiting focused and doesn’t yield any applicants, I would think that it doesn’t count but wanted to hear from the experts on this please. Thank you!
