What needs to be in a sponsor’s written Affirmative Action Plan?

Equal Employment Opportunity

The written Affirmative Action Plan must include the following components:

  • Workforce analyses for race, sex, and ethnicity (comparing the workforce and availability analyses)        
  • Utilization goals for race, sex, and ethnicity (if necessary) 
  • Utilization goals for individuals with disabilities
  • Targeted outreach, recruitment, and retention activities (if necessary) 
  • Review of personnel processes
  • Invitations to self-identify as an individual with a disability

Each of these components requires a sponsor to examine different elements of its apprentice workforce, document its review, and determine whether any element of its program is adversely impacting individuals within certain groups.  A guide preparing sponsors to develop their plans is available on the Create Your Plan Equal Employment Opportunity webpage.
