The Changemaker Speaker Series brings innovative and inspiring business leaders to campus to talk all things People, Planet and Profits twice per semester. Panelists discuss a variety of topics and ways to utilize business as a force to make the world a better place.
Some business hiring practices can unintentionally create real barriers to employment and therefore prevent full participation in the workforce, exacerbating already pressing issues of income and wealth inequality in our society. This panel will feature leading businesses that are pioneering innovative approaches that can not only create more open and equitable hiring, but also can dignify the experience of those who face challenges with entering or re-entering the workforce such as refugees and displaced persons, those recovering from substance abuse disorders, other physical or intellectual disabilities, or those with felony convictions. Learn howthese businesses are providing long term, quality employment, as well as appropriate support to ensure long term success for their employees, the community and their business.
