Employment First Town Hall

VOCART had a great turn out at the Employment First Town Hall in Gary last week. This was a collaboration between many groups. 
(Advocates discuss equity with Councilwoman Wyatt and Accessor Prince)

We discussed ways to promote having inclusive hiring practices for businesses, nonprofits and governmental entities. Thanks to IUN for hosting at the Moraine Student Center. 

(Advocates brainstorm ways to have incorporate inclusion.)

To learn more about how to integrate community employment at competitive wages as the first and preferred outcome for all people please like the Volunteer Office for Community Accessibility, Resource, and Training aka VOCART on Facebook. 

(Advocates take notes as the panel speaks)
