Diversity, Equity and Inclusion: The Untapped Labour Market
February 10, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm AST
The Halifax Chamber of Commerce is hosting a panel of experts to speak on the hiring opportunities in the untapped labour market. The untapped labour market includes people from the Black, African-Nova Scotian, Indigenous, immigrant, and persons with disabilities communities.
The Accessing a Skilled Workforce Task Force has been focusing on labour market shortages, the skilled workforce and retention of our students, and thus would like to give our business community the opportunity to learn how to access underrepresented groups in their employee search, the skills, and talents they bring and why ensuring diversity, equity and inclusion matters in all workplaces.
Moderated by NSCC President, Don, Bureaux, this group of experts will each speak to their perspective regarding the underutilization of those in the untapped labour market.
