The Activator Training Program teaches participants how to engage employers in implementing more equitable hiring and talent management practices. Developed for change leaders, business advisors and workforce specialists, the program provides guidance on how to help employers understand the business benefits and social impact of using skills-based practices to hire, retain, and develop staff.
Delivered via instructor-led online workshops and a self-paced online course, the training can be competed remotely and is provided free of charge through the Rework America Alliance.
The Activator program is suitable for people that advise employers on topics such as business development; hiring, human resources; and equity and inclusion. Previous participants have worked at regional and national business networks, Chambers of Commerce, and at large employers where they have been championing change within their own organization.
