The Fortune Society recently launched a partnership with JPMorgan Chase that aims to expand employment opportunities for Philadelphians impacted by the criminal legal system and open up new sources of talent for businesses.
As a part of the initiative, they are hosting a private event for employers on September 15th from 9:30 am to 4:00 pm at P4HUB. The aim of this event is to discuss the benefits of hiring justice-impacted individuals, share best practices and opportunities, and demystify the policies relevant to hiring an underutilized talent pool. We're hoping PRC Members can support this event by sharing this Save the Date with your employer networks. Attached is a letter you can use to give context to anyone you invite. Fortune Society would like to engage a variety of employers such as those who are exclusively second chance employers; those who have some experience and want to scale or are still on the fence about it; and those who have never employed justice-impacted individuals and want to learn more. Specifically, they're looking to invite CEOs, VPs, HR Directors, and DE&I Professionals. If you have any questions, reach out to Val Metla @ firstname.lastname@example.org
