Introducing: Employment and Language Task Force
HIPC's Coordination of Services Committee has initiated a task force to engage local employers about hiring newcomers, to connect employers with newcomers looking for job opportunities, and to explore innovative collaboration ideas.
The initial meeting of the Employment and Language Task Force saw a full house turnout, with a lot of conversation and enthusiasm in the room. Discussion focused on how to engage employers while leveraging previous local work and knowledge to support newcomers in achieving their employment and language goals.

The committee is co-chaired by Kate Sullivan of St. Charles Adult and Continuing Education and Cassandra D'Ambrosio of the Hamilton Chamber of Commerce. 
Stay tuned for more updates as the task force progresses.
