20th Annual Diversity Employment Day Career Fairs

Thirty Diversity Employment Day Career Fairs will be held in major cities throughout America in 2020. Traditionally the Mayor, Governor or Local Board of County Supervisors proclaims the day by Proclamation or Resolution.The primary focus of the Diversity Employment Day Career Fair is to provide an opportunity for nationally-recognized and top local employers to meet and interview qualified candidates from the multicultural and diverse communities of their city. The average candidate attendance ranges between 900-1,500. The median candidate has 3-5 years of work experience and a college degree. Many are recent veterans with state of the art career-related skills and are bilingual. The Diversity Employment Day Career Fairs start at 11AM and conclude at 3PM.

The Co-host of the Diversity Employment Day Career Fairs is the Diversity Recruiter’s Network that on the morning of the career fairs hosts a Diversity Roundtable exclusively for the employers, professional and community based organizations, Diversity Partners, and the Media. It includes a Continental Breakfast a Diversity Spirit Achievement Awards Ceremony and Key Learning Speakers. Recent Key Learning Speakers have included Pacific Gas & Electric’s Chief Diversity Officer, Coca-Cola Refreshments Director of Talent Acquisition, Cisco System’s Chief Inclusion and Collaboration Strategist, Kaiser Permanente’s Director of Workforce Planning and Development, the OFCCP and EEOC.

Among them are, local SHRM Associations, NCHRA, SAHRA, NBMBA, SWE, NSHMBA, NAAAP, WMBA, NAACP, UL, ALPFA, BDPA, and many more.
