About the webinar:
Employers have a critical role to play in creating more inclusive economies and supporting the success of immigrant and refugee workers, who often face significant challenges gaining access to the labour market. Immigrants and refugees are overrepresented in low-paying occupations and in sectors with poor working conditions and limited opportunities for economic mobility.
In this webinar, three workforce development experts share their perspectives on how workforce development organizations can successfully partner with employers to develop programs that meet employers’ evolving talent needs and integrate workers’ perspectives in program design.
The webinar also explores the Fund’s interest in supporting visionary organizations that focus on effecting the economic integration of immigrants and refugees through driving better employer engagement and equitable employer practices. The 2021 call for proposals focused on employer practices is closed. A new open call for proposals will open in 2022.
