Strengthen Employer Partnerships and Push for Inclusive Change
A Guide for Workforce Development and Social Enterprise Leaders
Across the country, millions of job seekers are excluded from employment opportunities. Whether it’s due to past justice-involvement, lack of educational access, language accessibility, or other barriers, workforce development programs are in a unique position to address this challenge.
By intentionally using their proximity to untapped talent and employers, workforce development programs can help employers create more inclusive pathways within their recruitment, hiring, and advancement practices for talent pools that have previously been overlooked for quality employment. That’s why we created The AdvoKit: A Toolkit to Create Strong Employer Partnerships and Push for Inclusive Change.
The AdvoKit: A Toolkit to Create Strong Employer Partnerships and Push for Inclusive Change is our two-part approach for cultivating relationships with employers and becoming a trusted advisor to shift their practices around recruitment, hiring, and advancement for talent pools that have previously been overlooked for quality employment.
