Invitation for Responses:
Improve the attraction, retention and career-advancement of equity-seeking groups in B.C.
A Call for Reponses (CFR) seeking pilot project proposals to improve the diversity and inclusion of equity-seeking groups in the BC workforce has now been posted on BC Bid. The purpose of the CFR is to invite responses for funding through the Sector Labour Market Partnerships program for pilot projects that can help improve the attraction, retention and career-advancement of equity-seeking groups in B.C. The pilot projects will help various sectors determine the course of future workforce development and/or commit to implementing existing Diversity and Inclusion strategies. The pilot projects will help determine what works best to address the systemic structures and behaviors that create advantage for some and disadvantage others.
The CRF can be accessed at this link. Please take time to review the document. An information call is scheduled for October 2 at 10 am. The deadline for responses is November 2 at 2pm.
