According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor and Statistics, the unemployment rate for Native Americans and Alaska Natives is nearly double that of the unemployment rate for the country as a whole. Not unlike other minority races, barriers to employment and a lack of inclusive work environment make finding meaningful and lasting employment hard to come by. So how can your organization recruit these valuable individuals and maintain an inclusive workforce that retains them long-term? During this one-hour webinar, Michael Nathanson of Native America Today and Theresa Lujan of the U.S. Department of Labor’s Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP) will help you:

  • Uncover tools and best practices for recruiting and retaining Native Americans within your workforce
  • Explore the benefits of the Indian Preference policy
  • Learn how OFCCP can connect you to the right resources, including the Indian and Native American Employment Rights Program (INAERP), so your diversity recruitment efforts are successful
