Cultivating Change Makers: Investing in the Next Generation of Leaders
This presentation is about educating employers on the importance of creating pipelines of internship opportunities for diverse, innovative, and goal-driven new careerist or transitioning professionals to gain working experience to be the next generation of leaders within their organizations. The foundation of the presentation in built on addressing the Equity Initiatives that directly target underserved/marginalized populations, students of color, women, students with disabilities, veterans, and students from the LGBTQ+ communities. We will be using the success of Kaiser Permanente Pipeline programs for internships, fellowships, and high school programs to highlight key culturally responsive recruitment practices on hiring, converting, and retaining highly-qualified and diverse talent.
