The Progressive Labour Party will be hosting a jobs summit on diversity, inclusion and opportunity on Tuesday.

“This event is an opportunity to hear our plans for change: facilitating job creation, growing our economy and ensuring that Bermudians come first when it comes to opportunities in our own country,” Diallo Rabain, the Shadow Minister of Environment, Planning and Workforce Development, said. “It is also an opportunity for Bermudians to ask questions and share their ideas to help build a country they believe in.”

He added: “With Bermudian jobs being lost and only non-Bermudian jobs growing every year under the OBA, many Bermudians are beginning to lose hope in a Bermuda that works for Bermudians.”

Mr Rabain will be joined by panellists Myra Virgil, Barclay Simmons and Cordell Riley, who will speak on topics relating to the PLP’s Vision 2025: Jobs Creation and Growth, Reforming Workforce Development, Social Enterprises and more.

The PLP Jobs Summit: Diversity, Inclusion and Opportunity will be held at Warwick Workmen’s Club at 7pm.
