|Sharing What We've Learned
Findings from the Alameda County
Business Leaders Summit on Reentry
|In June and July, we convened three events as part of our Business Leaders Summit on Reentry. We are pleased to now share with you a report of our findings from these events, Strategies for Creating Fair Employment Opportunities for People with Criminal Records.
We hope you will find this report useful. We encourage you to share it with your colleagues to help spread the word about these efforts and support employers who are interested in opening up hiring to people with past records.
On our Business Leaders Summit on Reentry webpage, you can find more information about the Summit events and access all of the event materials.
If you would like to continue to be involved in this work, please consider attending a training workshop or serving as an advisor to our project. You can contact Meredith Desautels at firstname.lastname@example.org to join our email list and receive more information.
Thanks so much for your involvement and support.
