First Employ Project

Nokee Kwe, the London Chamber of Commerce (LCC), and Libro Credit Union are pioneering the new First Employ Project. It aims to enhance inclusive economic growth by leveraging the Indigenous workforce’s strengths. The project, established in response to local businesses’ struggles recruiting and retaining Indigenous talent, aims to improve hiring norms and create culturally sensitive work environments. By way of a survey, assessing businesses’ reconciliation efforts and developing bespoke resources, the initiative hopes to inspire further workforce development partnerships and similar models elsewhere.
