As Long Island continues to become more diverse, two local nonprofits, AHRC Nassau and Minority Millennials Inc., are strengthening meaningful career opportunities for future Black, Indigenous and people of color (BIPOC).
AHRC Nassau, one of the largest disability agencies and employers in New York State, is joining Minority Millennials, Inc., a nonprofit focused on local BIPOC workforce development, to increase awareness of career opportunities and growth in the field of disability. The partners seek to respond to Nassau County’s increasingly diverse population, where approximately one out of every three Long Islanders is a person of color.
“AHRC’s partnership with Minority Millennials, Inc., is a way to bridge the future leadership gap, and do so while offering meaningful career opportunities,” said Stanfort Perry, Executive Director, AHRC Nassau. “I started my career 30 years in the disability field as an entry-level direct support professional. I am proud to now lead operations impacting more than 2,000 people with developmental disabilities, their families and the community. This partnership is a way to welcome the next generation of leaders.”
Together, AHRC Nassau and Minority Millennials, Inc., will seek to develop BIPOC staff members at all levels by offering authentic avenues of engagement for Long Island’s population of color.
Along with sharing AHRC’s open positions with partner organizations, Minority Millennials, Inc. virtual initiatives include resume assistance, job education events, recruitment events, and community building.
“We appreciate the opportunity to partner with a fellow nonprofit who shares the same vision of a more economically, culturally and socially sustainable future,” said Dan Lloyd, Founder & President, Minority Millennials, Inc. “AHRC walks the walk. It is an agency culture dedicated to the inclusion and advancement of all people.”
