About this Event
The Diversity Employment Network (DEN) has always been about helping organizations build a workforce with a culture on inclusion.
Join us as we host our first ever BIPOC Atlantic Job Fair, in partnership with Feed Nova Scotia.
As an organization, Feed Nova Scotia is early on in its journey to becoming a fair and equitable employer. To start creating positive social change, Feed Nova Scotia has sought out opportunities, such as this partnership with DEN, to support the development of stronger DEI practices in organizations across the provinces through learning, collaboration, and advocacy.
At this full-day event, attendees will hear from guest speakers on topics related to workplace diversity, equity and inclusion highlighting how diverse teams are stronger teams.
The job fair will include employer booths making it easy to showcase opportunities and meet with workforce-ready attendees fostering connections that may lead to hiring.
This is for organizations that see diversity as one of their core values and are committed to building equitable and inclusive workforces, now and into the future. It’s about creating a space for BIPOC job seekers, where different backgrounds will be accepted and celebrated.
When we work together, we work better. Make diversity your advantage!
