Employer Convening

Employers want safe and productive work environments.  So do we.

Employment has a significant impact upon recidivism, and so we host convenings with employers.  We explore with them the risks - and rewards - of hiring formerly incarcerated talent.  As with all stakeholders, we work to build relationships with human resource directors and in-house counsel so that we can generate productive conversations and effective post-meeting action plans.
