"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.
This program is unique in that it will utilize a proven learning and change model called “community of practice” that will lay the foundation for integrating fair chance hiring in the workforce. A community of practice refers to a group of people who share a concern or a passion for something they do and learn how to do it better as they interact regularly. Our vision is to assemble a group of committed professionals that gather to learn together, bond together, and actively change fair chance hiring in their companies and the State of Colorado.
This program aims to take companies from a place of care and empathy for fair chance hiring (often without a plan for action or awareness of what is blocking their ability to move forward) to a place where they are actively engaged in fair chance hiring in Colorado in a measurable way and are a part of the solution.
Who is this for?
This program is for senior hiring executives at companies where leadership is actively interested in advancing fair chance hiring in Colorado. Senior hiring executives are defined as individuals who impact hiring (COO, Head of HR, Head of Talent, etc.). Sponsoring companies should be prepared to support their executives’ participation in this program by allocating time, the program fee, and an internal audience for participants to share information and enact a fair chance hiring program at the conclusion of the program. The organization should expect to set goals for fair chance hiring and support implementation of the pilot project designed by their participating staff.
