Washington, DC,
December 15, 2014 - The American Association for Access, Equity and Diversity (AAAED), an association of equal employment opportunity (EEO), diversity and affirmative action professionals, announced the release of its Professional Development and Training Institute (PDTI) program for 2015.  Founded in 1974 as the American Association for Affirmative Action (AAAA), AAAED has four decades of leadership in providing professional training to members, enabling them to be more successful and productive in their careers. It also promotes understanding and advocacy of affirmative action and other equal opportunity and related compliance laws to enhance the tenets of access, inclusion and equality in employment, economic and educational opportunities.
AAAED’s PDTI has been a primary sponsor of quality training in equal employment opportunity (EEO) and affirmative action law and policy since 1991. PDTI faculty consists of experienced educators who understand both the theory and the applications of EEO, affirmative action and diversity law and policy.
In 2015, PDTI is launching its Diversity Management Program for practicing professionals.  This addition to its curriculum constitutes an expansion of its longstanding training in EEO Law, Complaint Processing, Counseling and Resolution; and Affirmative Action plan development.  This expansion is consistent with the association’s name change to encompass professionals who work in the areas of Diversity and Inclusion as well as EEO and Affirmative Action. 
AAAED will also offer courses related to Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972.  Title IX is enforced by the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights. OCR has been actively investigating compliance with the rules prohibiting discrimination by programs and activities receiving federal financial assistance.  One of the issues that the agency has been vigorously pursuing lately involves campus sexual assaults.  AAAED will train members and nonmembers alike to be better prepared to comply with Title IX.
