National Black Chamber Of Commerce Announces Diversity Recruiting Center To Connect Employers With Skilled Diverse Talent.
WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, November 16, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Proceeds to benefit and empower African American and Minority Communities through grants and programs to support entrepreneurship.
“As the U.S. continues to experience record labor shortages, racial disparities in unemployment rates persist across the country” states Karen Harlan, Senior Team Lead of Diversified Workplace. For example, September 2021 unemployment data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics shows a 7.9% unemployment rate for Blacks, as to 4.2% Whites. This divide speaks to a need for increased resources and technology to support employers in their search for diverse talent throughout the majority of industry segments. The NBCC’s Diversity Recruiting Center has a mission to facilitate a more diverse, equitable and inclusive workforce by offering companies a centralized resource from which to source personnel from historically underrepresented groups.
“Proceeds from the Diversity Recruiting Center are invested in African American and Minority communities through activities which encourage and enable entrepreneurship”, states Charles H. DeBow, III, Executive Director of the NBCC. Black business ownership rates have decreased more than 50% since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, and this partnership will fuel the increase in representation of African Americans in the workforce while providing resources to enable small diverse businesses.
