Removing Barriers to Employment

February 19 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm


Barriers to employment tend to be socially counterproductive and can serve to discriminate against minorities, women, persons with disabilities and older employees. Learning about these barriers and understanding how to remove them promotes equal employment opportunity in the workplace.

In this luncheon course, learn from Brien Shoemaker, Outreach Education Coordinator with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, about general barriers that inhibit equal employment opportunity. Also receive suggestions and ideas on how to create a diverse, productive, and harassment-free workplace.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the general barriers that inhibit equal employment opportunity
  2. Learn how to eliminate barriers to employment
  3. Develop a plan to recruit and hire that is free from barriers to employment
  4. Develop ideas and plans that would create a culture of civility and respect in your workplace

Brien will provide a 30-40 minute presentation followed by questions and brief discussion. Then we will bring together a panel of experts to offer advice on creating a culture of inclusion.
