Local schools team up for DEIB programs
Diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging (DEIB) are critical aspects to the recruitment and retention of employees within organizations. Lakeland University, Lakeshore Technical College and the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, Sheboygan Campus, are collaborating to hold a variety of activities in March to better support and advocate for students and alumni from underrepresented backgrounds.
“Many Sheboygan County companies are in the early stages of discussion about how they can build teams that reflect the community that they serve,” said Jess Lambrecht, Lakeland’s associate vice president of Cooperative Education & career readiness. “This is the first career fair of its kind in Sheboygan County and is truly a partnership effort that we believe is of great value.”
Companies registered for the fair include: Dutchland Plastics, Forefront Dermatology, Hospital Sisters Health System, Johnsonville Sausage, Sargento Foods and Prevea Health. “These organizations are leading the way in Sheboygan County,” Lambrecht said.
Students and alumni from all three partner institutions are invited to participate in these events virtually. For more information, please contact a career services team member at your respective institution OR email firstname.lastname@example.org.
