Everybody Works!

A workshop on diversity, youth and jobs
Mar 23, 2011  -  De Bazel Conference Center, Vijzelstraat 32, Amsterdam

“Everybody Works!” is a hands-on conference and workshop that explores practical ways in which to connect diverse youth to labor opportunities in the private and public sectors. Organized by the John Adams Institute in cooperation with the United States Embassy and the U.S. Department of State, the conference started off with an overview of the situation and challenges in the Netherlands, the United States and Europe, followed by presentations on best practices from officials and NGOs from the Netherlands, Germany, France, Ireland and the United States, among other countries.

“Everybody Works!” sees diversity as a positive aspect of a globalized world and a vital element in bringing prosperity and innovation to society. Minority youth face significant barriers in entering the labor market. By discussing diversity in ways that range from the “big picture” to practical approaches and successful programs, “Everybody Works!” hopes to foster the growth of a network of people committed to bringing diversity to the workplace and empowering future generations.
