  1. Bridging Gaps As long as we can remember, there has been a great divide between government agencies, business and education! Join us in the discussion to implement ways to change the paradigm to working together more efficiently.

  2. Exhibitors In addition to the structured educational experience, you'll be able to explore an exhibit hall featuring key vendors to the human resource regulatory market. If you are searching or benchmarking for new internal AA/EEO solutions, the opportunities are endless!

  3. Sightseeing and Shopping is just a Metro Ride Away Tysons Mall is divided in two parts, with specialty and high end stores on the north side of Chain Bridge Road and a great selection of regular to high end stores on the south side. In addition there is easy access to all of the monuments and museums.

  4. FOUR types of Certification Offerings This is the only place where you can get a New Professional, PDIT certifications or renew your Federal DOL Investigation certification all in one place! And don’t forget earning your HRCI and SHRM certs!

  5. Attendees going to Capitol Hill Conference participants will have an opportunity to travel to Capitol Hill for sessions with representatives and staff.

AAAED will provide talking points and information for newcomers who choose to participate in this event

  6. Honoring Powerful Leaders, Businesses and Universities Each year we recognize the extraordinary contributions of those who have made great strides in the areas of equity, access and diversity. This year AAAED will host a reception on Capitol Hill for our attendees and will present five awards to outstanding individuals, businesses and universities.

The National Conference gives everyone a chance to reconnect, reenergize and recommit to the business of making a difference in our area of the world.

Each workshop will be led by nationally known industry experts covering in- depth technical solutions, regulatory impact, and best practices!
