Join us for an exciting and interactive experience as we explore “Untapped Talent.” This series of six workshops will consider best practices in hiring and retaining justice-impacted individuals. Each workshop will teach participants about the challenges facing those who have traveled through our justice systems, help workforce professionals guide participants through the winding roads toward a career, and provide all attendees with a wealth of resources and tools to help workforce professionals and their participants find success. Beginning with his time behind prison walls, participants will learn through the eyes of instructor, administrator, workforce development specialist, and returning citizen, Jeffrey Abramowitz, JD. At the conclusion of this workshop series, you will have an opportunity to participate in an Employer Convening which will engage local employers in the process of hiring and retaining talent, and everyone will have a comprehensive handbook of resources and tools to assist you in your work in the workforce development field.
Audience: Employers and Workforce Professionals
