OFCCP Seeks Public Comment on Leadership in Equal Access and Diversity Award

Late last week, OFCCP published a notice in the federal register seeking public comment regarding its proposed Leadership in Equal Access and Diversity (“LEAD”) Award.  The LEAD award will

 recognize federal contractor and subcontractor establishments that have developed and successfully implemented comprehensive equal employment opportunity and nondiscrimination programs.

OFCCP and the Department of Labor’s Women’s Bureau are partnering to create this award.

This, and the agency’s previously announced Disability Inclusion Recognition Program, comes as no surprise given the recent release of Directive 2018-06, which announced the Agency’s intention to develop such programs. 

The public comment period for the LEAD award closes on December 18, 2018.
