Title: Beyond Compliance to Thriving Diverse Talent Pools: An EEO Discussion for Manufacturing Apprenticeships
Date and Time: Tuesday, May 4, 2:00 to 3:15 p.m. ET
Location: Webex (link to be shared)
Registered Apprenticeship (RA) programs can be effective vehicles for diversifying the talent pipeline in the manufacturing industry, and they can benefit employers and workers alike. RA offers people from underrepresented populations opportunities to acquire the skills and knowledge required in high-wage jobs that offer pathways to economic mobility. They also benefit employers by expanding the pool of workers who are qualified for hard-to-fill jobs.
This webinar will examine ways in which employers, sponsors, and other apprenticeship providers can more effectively recruit and retain women, Black and Latinx workers, and members of other underrepresented populations. Speakers who are experts in workplace diversity, equity, and inclusion practices will cover the rudiments of adhering to Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) regulations, as well as best practices that go beyond pro forma compliance and help you truly create opportunities for workers from underrepresented, and often overlooked, communities.
This training is for you if…
- You offer a manufacturing RA and want to make sure your practices comply with applicable EEO guidelines
- You would like to identify resources to help you recruit and retain a diverse pool of apprenticeship participants
- You are thinking of starting a RA (or registering an unregistered program) and would like to understand what you must do to comply with EEO regulations
- You help RA providers or employers develop manufacturing apprenticeships and would like to learn about other tools you can use to assist them
Be sure to join JFF, Chicago Women in Trades, and EEO expert Donna Lenhoff on May 4 at 2 p.m. ET to get started on the road to building a diverse and talented workforce through apprenticeship!
