More businesses and organizations are adopting Fair Chance hiring practices, prioritizing an applicant’s potential over his or her conviction record. How can any employer trying to promote diversity and inclusion apply the practices of Fair Chance employers? In this session two employers with thriving businesses consider the struggles and rewards of Fair Chance hiring. Cristina Tzintzún, executive director of Jolt, co-founded the Workers Defense Project at the age of 24 and has helped pass half a dozen local and state laws protecting the rights of workers. She moderates a conversation with Joe DeLoss (Hot Chicken Takeover) and Jeff Carroll (Details Deconstructions) about how they recruit, train and support employees, provide opportunities for advancement and build trust.
