The Right Talent, Right Now Symposium

Thursdays, October 8, 15 and 22, 2020 9AM-11:30AM

Keynote, expert speakers and breakout sessions

The unemployment rate for individuals with disabilities and many minority populations is at alarming levels, while businesses struggle to fill job openings and to find the right talent, right now.

At this pivotal time in our shared history, talent solutions are needed now more than ever.  How do we survive and thrive in this new normal? How does Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) adjust to these times? How do underserved populations find a workplace that feels like home? Our impactful educational and professional development series offers three sessions that give organizational leaders, workforce preparation agencies, and Human Resource/Staffing professionals the opportunity to learn strategies for improving employment results. This ultimately improves business outcomes through attracting, retaining and advancing the broadest diversity in talent. Join us!
