  • Educate the Lehigh Valley region on diversity and inclusion and best practices for recruitment and retention to build an inclusive culture where diverse talent can flourish; thereby supporting full employment in the region to help relieve and reduce unemployment.
  • Provide services and support for smaller organizations, companies and regional not-for profits that require assistance with recruitment and retention through a gifting program.
