We are pleased to announce that we will be holding our second Fair Chance Hiring Summit on Friday, November 17. The Orange County One-Stop Center in Irvine will once again be hosting our summit at their office. The November summit will focus on the employment challenges faced by formerly incarcerated veterans and discuss ways that employers can support them in achieving success.

This event is designed for HR professionals, hiring managers and business owners. Attendees will leave with tips on implementing fair chance hiring policies in their workplace and learn about ways to engage with local service providers to provide employment to and support formerly incarcerated veterans in Orange County. A job can do a lot to help a formerly incarcerated veteran rebuild their lives, so it is important that employers do their part to help make this a reality.

Our speakers will include Cory Vigil from the VetNet program at Working Wardrobes; Frank Fletcher, the Local Veterans Employment Representative at America's Job Center of California at the Santa Ana W/O/R/K Center; Raj Talwar, a supervisor in the Anaheim Parole Office; Stephanie Hammerwold of Pacific Reentry Career Services; and Edward Clarke, the founder of Need4Bridges. We are working on adding additional speakers to our lineup.

This event would not be possible without the support of our friends at the Orange County Re-Entry Partnership (OCREP), Working Wardrobes, Need4Bridges and the Orange County One-Stop Center.
