Berkshire expert to examine census updates at 39th Annual AAAA Conference.

Sybil Randolph, PHR

On May 8, 2013, Sybil Randolph, PHR, a leading compliance and diversity expert at Berkshire Associates, a human resource consulting and technology firm that assists companies in building their ideal, balanced workforce, will examine what compliance professionals can expect when it comes to the new census data and affirmative action planning in her 2013 American Association for Affirmative Action Conference presentation: “New Census Data and AA Compliance—Understanding the Impact.”

During the 2010 Census, human resource professionals and compliance officers were surprised to see the census collection tool did not solicit occupation and EEO information. Almost immediately, professionals were concerned about the absence of occupation-related questions, and wondered how data would be collected for affirmative action plans. Then the news was released, explaining the questions would be included in the American Community Survey (ACS). What does this really mean?

Sybil’s informative seminar will introduce participants to the ACS, its role, its frequency, the types of questions asked on the survey, and how the information is used. Attendees will also learn the impact it will have on their affirmative action planning, and changes they may need to make to their HRIS systems.
