We invite corporations to complete this form to join our robust employer’s network.
The Featherstone Foundation has an unparalleled network of multilingual candidates and trainees from underrepresented communities. Our robust network makes the Featherstone Foundation the premier source to support employers in their need to attract top talent. With employers’ self-reported inability to systematically “find diverse talent,” we have developed this program as a solution.
Our employer’s network provides a pipeline of qualified candidates from diverse backgrounds and creates career pathways for individuals.
