    RHRA Reverse Job Fair (Hosted by MaxAbility Southern MN Disability Employment Network)

    MaxAbility invites you to join us for a Reverse Job Fair!

    What is a Reverse Job Fair?
    In a typical job fair, candidates rotate to employers to learn more about the employer and what positions they have available. In a Reverse Job Fair, the candidate sets up a booth and the employers rotate around the room to come talk to YOU.

    What do I need to prepare for this event?
    You will be provided a table to set-up your booth. In your booth you could choose to use a tri-fold poster board to tell your stories in pictures. Another idea would be to use a computer to develop a presentation to share with employers. Bring copies of your resume to share with employers.

    Date/Time:  Wednesday, April 25, 2018, 8:00 – 10:30 a.m.

    Location:   Wood Lake Conference Center

    Registration:  Complete this brief survey to register - MaxAbility Reverse Job Fair Registration

    LAHRA - Everyday Cultural Competence: Building Skills in Communicating Across Differences

    Everyday Cultural Competence: 
    Building Skills in Communicating Across Differences

    Introverts and Extroverts. Generations. Differences in ethnicity, language and accent, spirituality, size and physical ability. Sexual orientation and gender identity. Education and economics.

    We seem to encounter more differences – of all types -- every day! Our challenge as communicators is to foster productive bonds with others, as well as communicating information. And to do all this with civilty and respect.

    This participatory session begins with self-awareness.  Then we’ll explore everyday cultural competence -- increasing our effectiveness as we encounter each other and work together on behalf of our organizations.

    Objectives:   We’ll focus on practical skills and approaches to effective cross cultural understanding and communication. We’ll explore ways to amplify our bridge-building techniques. And we'll set realistic action goals to keep building our skills and knowledge.

    Presenter Profile:

    Sue Plaster, M.Ed., is a diversity and intercultural communications consultant with more than 30 years’ experience in these disciplines. She helps organizations with diversity, leadership development and succession planning, and advises individual clients on job search and transition. Sue has a specialty in leadership succession and workforce planning that takes diversity and equity into account.

    LAHRA - Your Organization's DNA: Taking Culture Out of the Shadows

    Cultural change is difficult, so much so, organizations rarely know where to start. Organizations usually start with structure or tools, which are relatively easy to change but don't yield long-term competitive advantages. Some will go deeper, focusing on reward systems and performance measures, and a few will even pursue true behavioral change. These initiatives are great, but they don't result in a purposeful culture.

    LAHRA - Examining an Employer’s Legal Duty to Accommodate Based on Religious Beliefs and Practices

    Religious discrimination claims are on the rise, and Minnesota’s increasingly diverse population presents new challenges for employers who must balance legal compliance against business efficiency.  This session will examine the current legal landscape around an employer’s duty to accommodate employees’ religious beliefs and practices, including what constitutes religious discrimination and practical recommendations for religious accommodations in the workplace. 

    Kerry Middleton has extensive litigation experience in federal and state courts nationwide. He has successfully represented employers in virtually every type of employment claim including: discrimination, harassment, whistleblower, retaliation, breach of contract, workplace torts, non-compete agreements, trade secret disputes, and wage and hour litigation. Kerry has  defended his clients in administrative proceedings before the EEOC, the DOL, and state and local human rights agencies. He also provides advice and training to help employers avoid litigation. Kerry has published and lectured on a variety of employment law topics and has been recognized as one of the “Top 40 Minnesota Employment Litigators.”
