Research has shown that EEO Employers Group members are more likely to be active in diversity and EEO activities than employers who are not members.

A member survey in late 2010 found that the majority of our members rate our website, resources, library, quarterly publications, monthly newsletters and member meetings as excellent or good.

For example, one member commented: The resources, events and people are fantastic.
