CAWS, subcontractors, and members of the Diversity in Workforce Construction Committee are sponsoring a Construction outreach event to connect a qualified pre-screened pool of diverse craft worker candidates with subcontractors that are working on projects in the near term and have a desire for a diverse workforce.
The Goal of the event is to introduce, connect, and promote the hiring of women, veterans, and minority apprentices and pre-apprentice candidates with viable and likely employers.
Interested contractors are encouraged to contact John Gardner at (503)-478-7354 or Kevin Cady with Hoffman Construction at 503-221-8941 for more information.
