Global Equal Employment Opportunity Toolkit

A one-size-fits-all American-style approach to EEO compliance does not work globally because American laws on discrimination, harassment and diversity are unique in the world. Internationally, though, discrimination and harassment laws vary widely and in many countries diversity is not an issue. These differences complicate the EEO initiatives that American multinationals would otherwise launch globally.

This toolkit will address the broad scope of global discrimination programs. We will also cover two challenging discrimination subtopics, global age discrimination compliance, and global pay discrimination compliance. In addition, discuss global initiatives for combating workplace harassment. Finally, we will focus on global workplace initiatives regarding diversity.
