Reentry: Hiring from an untapped pool
The Reentry Project is hosting “Reentry: Hiring from an untapped pool,” a panel discussion for the business community about the hiring of people with criminal histories. What makes this event unique is the opportunity for business leaders to talk with each other about this issue. Representatives of local companies who frequently hire from the reentry pool will talk about why they do it, what the challenges are, and why they think other businesses could benefit from hiring more formerly incarcerated people.
This free event is designed for business leaders and human resource personnel. Register to attend.
Among the panelists will be:
- Donna Allie, PhD, president and CEO of Team Clean
- Jeff Brown, chief executive of Brown's Super Stores Inc.
- Bob Logue, president of Quaker City Coffee
- Beth Tiewater, director of development and programs of Baker Industries.
