The Inaugural Diversity Exchange Career and Job fair is set to take place in Conference Room A, at the Beckley Raleigh County Convention Center

The event is focused on helping businesses find a diverse array of employees who bring a variety of skills and backgrounds to the workplace.

“Diversity is the diversity of experience, diversity of thought, casting your net wide,” said event organizer Tina Pannell. “That’s my reason for diversity, is getting a different type of person in the position that can yield the best results.”
