What do 1965 and 2019 have in common? Both had critical moments for the changing landscape of inclusive hiring in the U.S.: 1965 championed the Civil Rights Act outlawing hiring discrimination based on race, color, religion, sex or national origin, and 2019 has been a critical year for the employment rights of previously incarcerated people. As we look toward 2020, are your company’s hiring practices set up for successful fair-chance hiring in this critical moment in our history? In this session, you’ll learn about today’s hiring landscape, uncover your potential business impact and increased ROI through fair chance hiring, and come away with practical tools to implement fair chance in your organizations.
