EEO Webinar

The Changing Face of the FCC’s EEO Rule

Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman, in association with the Massachusetts Broadcasters Association and participating state broadcasters associations, presents The Changing Face of the FCC’s EEO Rule in 2017, a webinar designed for radio and television broadcasters.

October 18, 1PM Eastern

While the FCC’s paperwork-intensive EEO Rule hasn’t changed in more than a decade, the FCC’s interpretation of what it requires continues to evolve. In this webinar, Pillsbury’s Lauren Lynch Flick, part of the Pillsbury legal team that successfully challenged the two prior iterations of the FCC’s EEO Rule on constitutional grounds, provides an overview of the current EEO Rule, including:

·         The increased flexibility broadcasters have recently been given in meeting their EEO obligations

·         The FCC’s latest EEO enforcement actions

·         The prospects for streamlining the EEO Rule’s paperwork burdens in a deregulatory FCC

Please join us for this multifaceted and in-depth discussion.
Contact Erin Eversole at 615.622.3735 with any questions.

Speaker:
Lauren Lynch Flick, Senior Counsel, Pillsbury

Each station will receive a certificate of participation for their EEO file upon completion of the webinar.
