Join HRMN for our monthly chapter meeting and program.
Speaker: Cindy Villarreal, Kansas Department of Corrections
Program: Fair Chance Practices
Justice-involved individuals are often overlooked for employment, leaving a motivated and talented workforce on the table in an environment experiencing significant labor shortages. In utilizing this workforce, businesses have a rich opportunity to enhance their talent pool. This interactive session will highlight the benefits of Second Chance/Fair Chance Hiring, and what a partnership with the Kansas Department of Corrections can offer, translating into positive outcomes for both employers and employees. You’ll have the opportunity to interact with a panel of Second Chance employers, justice-involved individuals who have been successful, and KDOC representatives.

As part of the KDOC Reentry team, she prepares justice-involved individuals to become productive and valued employees and responsible citizens.
