Program Details:

This full-day workshop will provide beginner-to-intermediate-level practitioners with information about adverse impact from technical, legal, and practical perspectives. The overall objective is to help participants become familiar with the definition of adverse impact, relevant regulatory guidelines, how to examine adverse impact (e.g., statistical vs. practical methods), and best practices to respond to and avoid adverse impact. As time permits, participants will take part in exercises and/or discussions that will help them apply the knowledge and skills discussed.


8:00 AM – 9:00 AM

Registration & Continental Breakfast (Danish, bagels and muffins, coffee and orange juice)

9:00 AM – 12:00 NOON

The morning session from Frank Igou will start with introducing the definition of adverse impact and related terminology. Frank will walk participants through the historical perspectives on adverse impact, legal cases, and different methods to examine adverse impact. Participants will also have “hands-on” experience in performing adverse impact analysis using different methods and tools. Finally, the session will include suggestions for employers on how to respond to a finding of adverse impact and to reduce the likelihood of adverse impact.
The session will pause at 12pm for lunch and continue at 1pm.

12:00 NOON – 1:00 PM

Lunch will be provided by ACME Fresh Catering. During registration, please select your preferred lunch wrap. Also, please provide any special instructions for your order (especially if you have allergies).

1:00 PM – 2:00 PM

After lunch, Frank will continue and finish the first session on adverse impact.

2:00 PM – 4:00 PM

The afternoon session from Dennis Doverspike will focus on practical issues that employers may be concerned about when dealing with adverse impact. In the session, Dennis will provide insights on why employers should assess and avoid adverse impact, the changing definitions of statistically vs. practically significant adverse impact, and additional regulations on the use of quota or race norming.

4:00 PM – 4:30 PM

The day’s presentation will conclude with a wrap-up discussion and brief Q&A session.

5:30 PM – 7:00 PM

Happy Hour! Enjoy a social event with friends and colleagues at Picks at PLX after the training sessions.
