In response to requests following publication of the final regulations implementing President Obama’s recent Executive Order addressing non-discrimination and affirmative action on the basis of sexual orientation and gender identity, OFCCP has published a directory of resources to assist federal contractors

 “around issues relating to creating an inclusive workplace of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender employees.”

The directory includes information from both public and private sectors and OFCCP indicates it will be updated periodically.

These resources can be useful as you train and educate managers and hiring personnel on the implications of these new protections.  The final regulations are set to go into effect on April 8, 2015.
