JobTrain’s Inaugural Economic Opportunity Awards program will highlight companies in the San Francisco Bay Area who have taken action to bridge the opportunity divide.   Awards will be given to companies whose hiring practices and programs encourage the success of people who are talented and skilled but who may not have the benefit of extensive education or have barriers to employment.

The Awards will go to companies in the 5 Bay Area Counties:  Alameda, Contra Costa, San Francisco, San Mateo, and Santa Clara. Eighteen (18) nominee finalist companies will be chosen, and six awards will be given to large, mid-size, and emerging companies.  In each category, there will be a technology and non-technology company winner.  The Economic Opportunity Awards will be held on Thursday, Feb. 16th at the Hiller Aviation Museum in San Carlos, from 6 pm – 8:30 pm.  Winners will be announced and honored at the event.

Nominee finalists and awardees will be chosen by two distinguished panels of Bay Area leaders.
