Event Details

G.R.I.T. - A New Way of Looking at the ADA

In “Grit: The Power of Passion and Perseverance,” author Angela Duckworth explains that high achievement isn’t predicted by SAT scores, social status, intelligence, or genetics. The most important key to success is “grit” which she defined as “passion and perseverance for long-term goals.”

When we think of grit, many times we think about military veterans who served in hostile territory under stressful circumstances.

Could your company use more G.R.I.T.?

If your company would like to stop leaving high quality applicants on the table, this workshop is for you.

If your company is letting your best and brightest walk out the door, this workshop is for you.

In this exciting program, our panelists will illuminate how to pave a path for onboarding, managing, and maximizing the strengths that veterans bring to the table. Our focus is on business success, employee success, and mitigating ADA liability.

Please join us for a rich dialogue and to receive technical assistance on G.R.I.T.

(Growing a Robust Integrated Team)

EEOC-Denver Field Office

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) is responsible for enforcing federal laws that make it illegal to discriminate against a job applicant or an employee because of the person's race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy), national origin, age (40 or older), disability or genetic information. It is also illegal to discriminate against a person because the person complained about discrimination, filed a charge of discrimination, or participated in an employment discrimination investigation or lawsuit.


Most employers with at least 15 employees are covered by EEOC laws (20 employees in age discrimination cases). Most labor unions and employment agencies are also covered. The laws apply to all types of work situations, including hiring, firing, promotions, harassment, training, wages, and benefits.


The EEOC has the authority to investigate charges of discrimination against employers who are covered by the law. Our role in an investigation is to fairly and accurately assess the allegations in the charge and then make a finding. If we find that discrimination has occurred, we will try to settle the charge. If we aren't successful, we have the authority to file a lawsuit to protect the rights of individuals and the interests of the public. We do not, however, file lawsuits in all cases where we find discrimination.


We also work to prevent discrimination before it occurs through outreach, education and technical assistance programs.


The EEOC provides leadership and guidance to federal agencies on all aspects of the federal government's equal employment opportunity program. EEOC assures federal agency and department compliance with EEOC regulations, provides technical assistance to federal agencies concerning EEO complaint adjudication, monitors and evaluates federal agencies' affirmative employment programs, develops and distributes federal sector educational materials and conducts training for stakeholders, provides guidance and assistance to our Administrative Judges who conduct hearings on EEO complaints, and adjudicates appeals from administrative decisions made by federal agencies on EEO complaints.
