The Office of Federal Contracts Compliance Programs (OFCCP) and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) launched a joint initiative to reimagine hiring practices with the goal of advancing equal employment opportunities and providing workers access to jobs.

The Hiring Initiative to Reimagine Equity (HIRE) is a multi-year collaborative effort to address key hiring and recruiting challenges and engage stakeholders to expand access to good jobs for workers in underrepresented communities. (HIRE - OFCCP link; HIRE - EEOC link)

HIRE will:
