• an interactive panel discussion
• small breakout discussions with HR representative and NorCal BAC partners

You’ll leave this event with the knowledge and relationships that can guide you through the process of increasing your business’ workforce diversity that contributes to your bottom line.

Event speakers:

Malena Madrigal, Talent Acquisition Project Manager at Franklin Templeton, created the Ability Recruitment Program at Franklin Templeton, which has partnered with the BAC partner, Progressive Employment Concepts, to recruit and onboard employees into various departments.

Bahar Abullarade, Talent Acquisition Leader at Raley’s has been a passionate champion of inclusive hiring and forming deep community connections. Raley’s has Community Connection Meet and Greets every 3rd Thursday to meet people who want a personal connection while exploring career opportunities.

Daniel Degeorge Sr, Human Resources Business Partner at Essendant, created an applicant pool of high-performing employees who can working in less than a week after a position opens. A recent review of employees from the Alternative Hiring Project found that this team was working nearly twice as fast as employees hired through the traditional pipeline, had 2.5 less absenteeism, and had no safety recordables. Essendant rolled out their Alternative Hiring Project in less than a year and has only been implementing this strategy in Sacramento for 3 months.
