freedom from injustice - and freedom of opportunity.  Ignoring these needs can precipitate battles and divide nations. Words which evoke such emotion are surely worthy of your interest, study, and thoughtful reflection."

EEO GUIDANCE, Inc.® provides consulting and training services designed to fit the needs of your company or agency (managers and employees) in the following areas:

  • Equal Employment Opportunity (can be focused on one EEO basis such as Sexual Harassment, Racial Harassment, Religious Discrimination or can be a general session on all of the EEO bases of discrimination)
  • Affirmative Action (Executive Order 11246, Section 503 (Rehabilitation Act) or 4212 (Veteran)
  • Diversity - Inclusion
  • Interviewing Skills for all employees who wish to get ahead in your company or agency




If you have an employee, supervisor, or manager who just simply is not "getting it" when it comes to discrimination or inappropriate behavior in the workplace, don't terminate him/her and send them on to another employer to continue the bad behavior; rehabilitate that employee through the EEO GUIDANCE EEO One-on-One Training half or full day workshop. 

The session includes a combination of EEO, Affirmative Action, and Diversity facts and definitions, an employee personal assessment, a quiz specific to the action needing to be addressed, and more.  Each session is designed specifically for the problems and issues needing to be addressed.  EEO GUIDANCE, Inc. has worked with the court system to provide personal one-on-one EEO training to satisfy requirements from the Department of Justice, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, and the DOL/OFCCP.   



EEO GUIDANCE, Inc. conducts neutral, fact based, and detailed EEO Investigations for your company.  Dawson will personally conduct the needed investigations relating to the complaint/case, review related documents, analyze the documentation and provide a detailed written report, with recommendations for action (if requested). 

Training in EEO reduces EEO complaints through education and creates an environment of RESPECT.

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) statistics reveal EEO training is necessary to ensure equal treatment and non-discrimination in the workplace.  Nearly all discrimination cases settled include a clause requiring annual EEO training for all employees.  

Just so you know:  There were thousands of EEO claims filed this past year, with settlements totaling millions of dollars.  Don't become a statistic with the EEOC or the OFCCP.  EEO complaints cause disruption in the workforce and can be very costly (not to mention (okay I will mention) the negative publicity to your business).   Ensure  all employees understand their person obligations of EEO/AA; specifically your supervisors and managers.  Your management team must fully understand the EEO and Affirmative Action laws and regulations.



EEO GUIDANCE works with EEO LOGIC to prepare Affirmative Action Programs, to include an Executive Order 11246 AAP, Section 503 (Disability) AAP, 4212 (Veteran) AAP, Compensation Analysis, and Impact Ratio Analysis.   Part of our mission is to assist organizations in their effort to provide Equal Employment Opportunity and comply with Affirmative Action legal requirements. We do this by ensuring the accurate preparation of Affirmative Action Programs. This means creating an AAP that will best adhere to federal regulations and reduce the possibility of costly losses encountered by non-compliance, inadequate attempts at compliance, or yet undiscovered discrimination practices.
