Join Rhonda Aubin-Smith, District Director, OFCCP-Boston, and members of the New England ILG (NEILG) to discuss how to team with regulators, community resources and employer peer-group resources to ‘Be the Beacon for Change’.  The panel will discuss individual company initiatives and the availability and utility of community programs to increase the workplace participation of historically marginalized groups.  The panel will discuss challenges and possibilities for developing the skill sets of potential applicants – not just identifying minority candidates, but working to ensure equal access by increasing skills to increase the likelihood of selection.
