We heard an overview of the region’s diverse populations and hiring trends and learned about some of the programs Career Solutions leads within the immigrant community. We also heard about how one of the largest health care organizations in Minnesota is strengthening their diversity and inclusion practices through community outreach. There were methods shared used to engage Somali immigrants about career opportunities and to help employers recruit and retain immigrant workers.
