Diversity Employment Day Career Fairs provide recruiters access to the United States' largest pool of diverse, multi-cultural and qualified professionals. It is the only career fair that targets and delivers candidates from all classes covered under the Title VII Civil Rights Act of 1964. This includes women, minorities, seniors, lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (GLBT) people and people with disabilities. The Diversity Career Fairs are held annually in most major cities where the mayor and/or governor proclaim "Diversity Employment Day."
