Now more than ever, employers in the manufacturing, distribution, and supply chain sectors struggle to fill job vacancies. By rethinking hiring practices and diversifying the workforce to include neuro-diverse individuals within the hiring process, these shortages can be alleviated. Senior Partner Christine Malafi will speak on a panel to discuss the many benefits of hiring a member of Long Island’s Autistic population and helping solve these staffing challenges.
The panel discussion, hosted by Ignite LI and the Town of Islip, will highlight vocational and employment training programs, payroll reimbursement, and tax credit incentives for employers.
Date: Tuesday, April 12, 2022, from 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM
