The Business Case for Fair Chance Hiring
March 16, 2021 @ 10:00 am - March 17, 2021 @ 2:00 pm MDT
The Fair Chance Hiring Platform is inviting Colorado-based employers to its inaugural event. This virtual, two-day event will feature renowned experts presenting motivations, strategies, and resources that support fair chance hiring in our state.
“Fair chance hiring” refers to the practice of employers hiring people with criminal records. It is built on the premise that everyone deserves fair consideration for jobs they are qualified for.
The stark reality: Over 70 million Americans (1/3 of the adult working population) have a criminal record. These records are debilitating, causing lifelong barriers to employment that have far-reaching consequences for our communities. Fair chance hiring is more than just a moral response to mass incarceration. It is an economic one as well.
