Greyston 2019 Gala
May 2, 2019 @ 6:30 pm$250
Yonkers, NY (May 2, 2019) – Join Hudson Valley business leaders, community members, Virgin Unite President, Jean Oelwang, and NBC Weather Anchor, Dave Price, as Master of Ceremonies at X2O in Yonkers, NY to celebrate 37 years of Open Hiring at Greyston’s Gala.
Started by founder, Zen Master Bernie Glassman, Open Hiring is the practice of welcoming people into the workforce with zero judgment – no-questions asked – and giving people the wrap-around services they need to thrive in life. The promise of Open Hiring is in its powerful ability to transform: locally – to transform individuals on a path to economic and personal freedom; regionally – to transform companies (and communities) on how to rethink value in their local labor pool; and globally – to transform society and embark on the new challenge for the business community to hire a workforce eager to contribute to their communities and the economy.
“It’s an honor to celebrate Open Hiring with Greyston and the community it serves in Southwest Yonkers, NY”, said Jean Oelwang, President of Virgin Unite and 2019 Bernie Glassman Trailblazer Award recipient. “Greyston demonstrates that putting people first benefits business and the community. They are an inspiration to all of us and a beacon for an inclusive future of work.”
