Our Partners

  • “I learned so much! I have attended several DEI trainings over the past few years but really appreciated the collaboration and tailored approach provided by the Cara Inclusive Employment Institute. Learning from not only the Cara experts but also members of the Cara community and other companies that are tackling DEI challenges was incredibly valuable. Thank you so much! ”
    – Jillian Radke, North America Head of Campus Recruitment, AON
  • “You’re being biased in your hiring practices and you don’t even realize it. It’s happening every day, but you are oblivious. Implicit biases are preventing you from creating a Diverse and Inclusive workplace. Cara will work with you to educate and better form your understanding of what it truly means to be inclusive. ”
    – Zeeshan Syed, Talent Acquisition Lead, IAA
  • “Cara is the gold standard of community organizations that come alongside the job candidate, meet their individual needs, place them in transitional employment, and then transition them to meaningful jobs. ”
    – Genevieve Martin, Executive Director, Dave’s Killer Bread Foundation
