The Title VII Administrators Association (VIIAA) was formed by the team that created the membership association ATIXA (www.atixa.org) in 2011. #MeToo hit the college world long before it hit workplaces in 2017, and ATIXA serves 3,500 of the 4,300 colleges and universities in the U.S.
Over the last nine years, ATIXA’s experts have built a class-leading resource for higher education and K-12, and now we’re taking the best of that approach to corporate America.
Are colleges and corporations the same? No, but colleges are employers, and they’re subject to Title VII and Title IX, making their compliance issues extremely complex. Our team consists of equal parts education attorneys, employment attorneys, and corporate attorneys. With some savvy Human Resources and Diversity & Inclusion professionals to balance the service offerings to you.
VIIAA is designed to translate our success from higher education into best-in-class tools for the workplace. After all, the students from yesterday are the corporate employees of today and tomorrow. We know a lot about them, how they think, what motivates them, and what works to shape and re-shape their behaviors.
We’ve pioneered application of remedies-based resolutions, no-contact orders, cognitive interviewing, pregnancy accommodations, bystander engagement, primary prevention, and many other innovations that are being introduced by employers, often for the first time.
VIIAA is here to empower the “technology” transfer of taking the best practices developed since 2011 in the education realm and presenting them effectively within workplaces, corporations, organizations, and agencies.
