Diversity Hiring Coalition

    The Diversity Hiring Coalition of Maine

    Our Mission:

    We provide leadership, connections, education and resources to Maine employers

    to promote diversity in the workplace

    The Diversity Hiring Coalition will focus on three strategic areas from 2015-2017. Each area has a specific vision for their work:
    1. Aging Workforce: To provide resources and education to organizations to bridge the generational divide in the work place
    2. Racial and Ethnic Diversity: To provide education, resources, and networking opportunities to attract, retain and promote racial and ethnically diverse talent in Southern and Central Maine.
    3. LGBTQ community: To promote and support workplace cultures where all people are welcomed, respected, and made to feel safe, as their authentic self, inclusive of one’s sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression
    The Diversity Hiring Coalition is an affiliate of the SHRM Maine State Council, which serves and advances the human resource profession throughout the state.
    The Diversity Hiring Coalition is an endorsing sponsor of the Maine HR convention.
