Organization History

The Indiana ILG was founded in 1997 to provide a forum for open communications to foster a spirit of cooperation and trust between Indiana employers and the Office of Federal Contract Compliance/U.S. Department of Labor (OFCCP), Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), and related agencies, which will result in greater equal employment opportunity through effective affirmative action and diversity practices and programs.

Industry Liaison Groups (ILGs)

Industry Liaison Groups (ILGs) were formed in the early 1980s to encourage open communications between private industry and the US Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) and have evolved to include partnerships with other government agencies, such as the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). Local ILGs are found in every Department of Labor (DOL) region across the United States. ILGs are a unique private and public sector forum and there are more than 90 ILGs representing more than 2,500 companies that have federal contract and subcontracts.

National Industry Liaison Group (NILG)

The National Industry Liaison Group (NILG) is composed of representatives from various ILGs around the country. The NILG works closely with the OFCCP, EEOC, related administrative agencies and local and regional ILGs by advocating the positions and viewpoints of ILG member organizations, helping to influence regulatory and legislative outcomes and educating constituents on developments regarding equal employment opportunity, affirmative action and related regulatory changes.
