Can construction and development companies help to increase employment opportunities for young black men in London?


Purpose of event

To learn more from construction and development companies about:

  • What messages or approaches work to engage companies in discussions about young black men?
  • The reasons why low numbers of young black men are employed in this sector?
  • Any effective practices for recruiting young black men?
  • Are any companies interested in working more closely with the MoU programme on this issue?


Intended outcomes

  • Companies have an increased awareness of employment barriers facing young black men; and
  • Companies are willing to engage beyond the event on 10th April 2017.
