A mechanism for accountability.
The CBF will complement local agreements New Flyer establishes with transit agencies and community partners across America, and is the foundation that will govern, create, and implement robust programming at all New Flyer facilities. It magnifies existing approaches to support workforce development, while enhancing the hiring of underserved and underrepresented individuals.
Established in 2010, the Transportation Diversity Council (TDC) is a nonprofit organization delivering world-class education and development programs that promote diversity in the transportation and construction industries, with extensive experience in recruitment, training, and retention of employees in advanced manufacturing.
Evolving our approach.
The CBF reflects a holistic approach to workforce and community well-being, including establishment of an Employee Engagement Committee, effective management of a safe and respectful workplace, execution of leading environmental health and safety practices, commitments to disadvantaged business enterprises, and industry advocacy for workforce development and inclusion.
With a relationship first established in 2017, TDC has expanded its partnership with New Flyer to continue supporting development and preservation of meaningful relationships with community organizations, in alignment with CBF objectives to hire individuals from local groups and programs that focus on underrepresented and underserved populations.
New Flyer remains committed to ongoing career development for people of all walks of life, including veterans, women, people of color, people with differing abilities, and underrepresented and underserved individuals in the field of advanced manufacturing.
