The History of your San Diego ILG

In Late 2002, the San Diego EEO Council made a transformation in becoming the San Diego Industry Liaison Group (SDILG). The SDILG is dedicated to promoting equal employment opportunity and providing leadership in the corporate community. The Group is focused on learning about and applying Federal and State EEO and Affirmative Action laws and also providing programs for practical and technical training in these areas.Our membership is comprised of San Diego employers from many different industries that are  dedicated to the principles of EEO, affirmative action and diversity.The SDILG meets every other month to conduct group business and listen to interesting topics from ADA to addressing Sexual Harassment in the workplace to recruiting a diverse workforce. Topics are chosen by member request. We also contact agencies such as the DFEH. EEOC and the OFCCP to speak on current topics and provide legal updates

The Start of the ILGs

Industry Liaison Group (ILG) is a concept, spawned by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance (OFCCP) programs in the early 1980’s to encourage open communication between industry and the OFCCP. The objectives have expanded since the ILG’s beginnings to include partnerships with other government agencies, including the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and state and local agencies. Local ILGs are found in every Department of Labor (DOL) region.
