In their recent article “Building Community Partnerships to Strengthen Local Hiring,” our community hiring partner Towson University talks about how they are changing lives through inclusive employment, in partnership with the Baltimore Integration Project and Humanim’s Administrative Assistant Career Training program. Along with other anchor institutions, Towson University has been a critical partner in training, mentoring, and placing our administrative assistant trainees into promising and rewarding career paths.
