The Diversity Employment Network (DEN) has always been about helping organizations build a workforce with a culture on inclusion. 

Our partnership with Feed Nova Scotia came to be as it was an organization, early on in its journey to becoming a fair and equitable employer. To start creating positive social change, Feed Nova Scotia has sought out opportunities, such as this partnership with DEN, to support the development of stronger DEI practices in organizations across the provinces through learning, collaboration, and advocacy.

At this full day event, attendees will hear from guest speakers on topics related to workplace diversity, equity and inclusion highlighting how diverse teams are stronger teams

The job fair will include employer booths both in-person and virtually, making it easy to showcase opportunities and meet with workforce-ready attendees fostering connections that may lead to hiring.

Jobseekers will be able to submit their resumes for employers ahead of time to facilitate interviews on the day, so if you are looking to make connections and find your next position, Submit your resume to here.

This is for organizations who see diversity as one of its core values and are committed to building equitable and inclusive workforces, now and into the future. It’s about creating a space for BIPOC job seekers, where different backgrounds will be accepted and celebrated.

When we work together, we work better. Make diversity your advantage!

Job seekers will be free to explore the job fair and connect with organizations of interest to them.

We will have entertainment! We want this to be an uplifting event and we will feature talent from BIPOC communities to make sure the atmosphere is fun and welcoming.
