As our communities become more diverse, it becomes more challenging to effectively provide culturally and linguistically appropriate services to those we want to help. How does your organization effectively recruit and retain bilingual, bicultural staff that better reflect the community you are trying to serve? How do you become an attractive employer to diverse candidates looking for a place to work? How do you craft job postings and job descriptions to attract the bilingual and bicultural skill sets you need? What can we, as employers, do to develop a future labor force that meets our community’s needs?
Join us at our September 14th Forum on the Latino Community, where we will engage in a discussion on this important topic.
