Disparity Study Events
ITD is committed to engaging the public in the 2016 ITD Disparity Study process. ITD and the BBC study team will host various events throughout the course of the disparity study to help the public understand the purpose of the study and to offer opportunities for the public and various stakeholders to submit testimony and comments about their experiences with and perceptions of working in the local marketplace. The events schedule will be updated regularly. Please check back periodically for those updates.
ITD and BBC will conduct three public forums throughout the state in August 2016. During each meeting, the study team will give a presentation describing the disparity study, including its purpose, methodology, and the study schedule. Following the presentation, attendees will be given the opportunity to submit verbal testimony about their experiences doing work in the local marketplace and to ask questions about the disparity study. No registration necessary.
