In-demand occupations are available to job seekers after incarceration, but applicants and workforce development professionals alike have questions regarding their accessibility. What concrete steps can job seekers take to navigate the application process with a criminal background, and what do employers really mean when they say they hire on a “case-by-case” basis? 

 At 11am, join Dr. Edward M. Barksdale, Jr., who will preface the panel discussion with an introduction to health equity in hiring and management practices. Stay for a light lunch at 12pm, followed by a panel discussion at 12:30 p.m. featuring local leaders in the criminal justice system and reentry process. Hear perspectives on progress with motivational speaker and author Cedric Brown, Director of the Cuyahoga County Office of Reentry Crystal Bryant, Judge Tanya Jones of the Court of Common Pleas, District 10 State Representative Terrence Upchurch, and President of Kowalski Heat Treating, Steve Kowalski. Pick-up a copy of their biographies detailing the career journeys of our panelists.
