For Immediate Release

The College of Continuing Education and Community Service (CCECS) at the University of Hawaiʻi at Hilo offers a diversity in the workplace workshop in Hilo on Saturday, April 9, from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. in UH Hilo’s UCB Room 331. The cost is $50.

Diversity in the Workplace: Hiring People With Disabilities Who Fit Your Needs is taught by Jeani Navarro, who has worked with youths and adults with a variety of disabilities and has 20 years of experience in career development and training. The workshop will cover how to hire a diverse, productive and dependable workforce, how to ask questions about skills and abilities rather than focusing on the disability, how to create a positive interview atmosphere, and more.

Private and non-government employers/businesses may qualify for a 50% tuition waiver through the State’s Employment & Training Fund (ETF). For details, visit and apply at least 10 business days before the start of class.
