Sixth Annual Combating Racial Injustice Workshop: "Employment Discrimination and Employment Practices"
This workshop - in collaboration with the Employment/Income Gap Issue Group of the Dialogue on Race - will address racial disparities in employment nationally, in Virginia, and the New River Valley.
Dr. Wornie Reed will present data on employment discrimination nationally and in Virginia from a Race and Social Policy Research Center project.
Sarah Halvorson-Fried, a former member of Dialogue on Race, a recent Master's graduate of the Urban and Regional Planning Program and currently a researcher with the Harlem Children's Zone, will present on her study of diversity in employment practices in the New River Valley.
Each presentation will discuss potential remedial policies and invite workshop participants to consider corrective measures.
