MDHR increases Workforce Participation Goals to reduce barriers for women, people of color
Today, Minnesota Department of Human Rights Commissioner Kevin Lindsey announced increased Workforce Participation Goals for women and people of color throughout Minnesota for state construction contractors. These increased goals aim to reduce barriers to workforce entry, to respond to demographic changes, and to prepare for Minnesota’s emerging workforce shortage.
The increased goals were adjusted with input from an advisory task force comprised of representatives of construction contractors, unions, trades and the public. The task force was co-chaired by Commissioner Lindsey and Christa Seaberg, Diversity Manager at JE Dunn.
