Getting Talent Back to Work: A SHRM Foundation Initiative

Presented by:

Dr. Genevieve Rimer 

Director of Inclusive Hiring, Center for Employment Opportunities 

This program is pre-approved for 1 SHRM PDC & HRCI  General Credit

People with criminal records—especially the formerly incarcerated—face enormous barriers to employment. Talented and eager to work, this untapped pool of workers can bring great value to employers and communities when given the opportunity to thrive and succeed in the workplace. But too often, they are denied the opportunity they need to put their skills to work due to deeply rooted biases and harmful misperceptions.

The objective of this training is to equip HR professionals with the knowledge and tools to create equitable and inclusive practices within their business as it relates to the SHRM Foundation Getting Talent Back to Work initiative. The training covers creating a culture change and the talent lifecycle as it relates to people with prior criminal records. It will also cover next steps and resources that are available.

Dr. Genevieve Rimer has nearly 20 years of professional and lived experience in the reentry field. Her portfolio of expertise includes direct service delivery to people reintegrating from incarceration, providing technical assistance to workforce stakeholders and assisting employers in transforming their workplaces to be inclusive of people with convictions. At CEO, Genevieve leads our inclusive hiring field building efforts which include training workforce stakeholders, developing curricula and speaking on national platforms about the importance of fair chance hiring. Genevieve has a doctorate degree in social work.
