The National Industry Liaison Group (NILG) is the premier employer association on affirmative action and equal employment opportunity in the United States. We are a non-profit organization formed in 1992 for the main purposes of improving communications between the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) and Industry Liaison Groups (ILGs); and, enhancing the quality and overall effectiveness of Industry Liaison Groups. The NILG Board supports approximately 61 Industry Liaison Groups (ILGs), which are comprised of small, mid-size and large federal contractors and employers across the country. Local ILGs are in every Department of Labor (DOL) region. No other employer association has a broader base of constituents focused on EO/AA matters. Since its beginning, the National Industry Liaison Group has continued to improve and enhance its structure, purpose, and membership; and has evolved to address new challenges and opportunities.

Our Mission is to promote Affirmative Action and Equal Employment Opportunity by working closely with the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs, Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, related administrative agencies and Local and Regional ILGs to:

  • Advocate the positions and viewpoints of our constituents
  • Comment and provide feedback on Regulatory and Legislative initiatives
  • Educate our constituents on developments regarding equal employment opportunity and affirmative action and related regulatory changes.

We accomplish this mission by carrying out the activities outlined in our bylaws and by achieving targeted objectives. The NILG is proud of the voluntary and unique partnership of public and private sector cooperation it has been able to foster as an effective approach in dealing with important legal and regulatory issues regarding affirmative action and equal employment opportunity. The National Industry Liaison Group is committed to. . . Working Together Towards Equality In The Workplace!
