Destination Medical Center (DMC) and the City of Rochester are partnering with Winona State University Adult & Continuing Education to offer Inclusive Workforce Practices: Why You Need a Workforce Participation Plan, a free online workshop on January 20, 2021, from 2:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. This workshop is for CEOs, presidents, vice presidents, managers, recruiters, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) / Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) /Affirmative Action (AA) officers, and other human resource generalists and specialists across multiple sectors who want to learn how to make workforce diversity support organizational success.

Sybil L. Dunlop, a national thought leader on DEI issues will be facilitating the workshop. Dunlop helped found Greene Espel’s Diversity & Inclusion practice which helps workplaces design and implement DEI programs to meet organizational goals, and she has spoken on this topic to more than 100 audiences across the nation.

Participants will:

• Understand the value proposition for effectively recruiting and retaining a diverse and inclusive workforce.
• Learn the benefits of integrating actionable Workforce Workplans with your Affirmative Action Plan (AAP) to meet workforce participation goals.
• Become aware of best practices from organizations with leading equitable and inclusive hiring practices.

DMC and the City of Rochester want to ensure equitable opportunities for contractors and the workforce. Beginning in 2021, the City of Rochester will require Workforce Participation Work Plans with bids on DMC projects.
