WASHINGTON - The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity  Commission (EEOC) will hold its Executive Leadership Training Conference (ELTC)  on Oct. 29-31 at the Boar's Head Resort Educational Campus in Charlottesville,  Va., the federal agency announced today.

This year's ELTC is designed to give  participants skills to build high-performance teams that are innovative,  adaptable and able to successfully cross-collaborate to produce targeted  results. Agile leaders are able to create teams that are analytical, have  strong values, and a sense of connectedness with team members and other  stakeholders.

The ELTC meets the professional development needs of senior  leaders in the field of equal employment opportunity (EEO), Human Resources  (HR) and diversity and inclusion (D&I). Training will address key  leadership competencies; personal development and critically important topics  vital to the success of current and future executives - particularly senior EEO  officials for federal, state and local governments; private sector EEO  executives; HR executives with responsibility for managing and implementing an  EEO program; as well as those striving to attain senior level positions.

"ELTC is a cost-effective and modest investment in the  executive leadership skills necessary to run a successful EEO program," said  Carlton M. Hadden, director of EEOC's Office of Federal Operations. "This  training will directly address core leadership competencies, ensuring that EEO professionals  have the executive training necessary to meet the challenges of our  profession."

ELTC offers many learning opportunities throughout the three  days. Day One begins with a workshop on political savvy led by Vanessa Phipps  of The Future Force Group, LLC, followed by a networking opportunity to engage  in more interpersonal dialogue. Day Two includes remarks on managing up from  leadership expert Mary Abbajay, president and founder of Careerstone Group,  LLC, followed by Bridging the Gap Cooperative Group Challenges that sharpen  performance by calling leaders to use their creativity and problem-solving  skills. Day Three leadership trainings include University of Virginia presenter  Pete Ronayne, discussing leadership and innovation; John Lord of Lord/Thompson  Associates, discussing values-based leadership, and John Whitlow of JHW  Consulting Services, discussing strategies to build teamwork. Registration is  limited to GS-14 level and above, as well as GS-13 level employees who  demonstrate exceptional potential for leadership, and private sector  equivalents.
