The Diversity Group You're Overlooking: How to be a Fair Chance Employer

Why should employers take a chance on people with conviction histories?


Today, 1 in 3 Americans have a criminal record, ranging from minor offenses to extensive conviction histories. This leads to a brutal cycle of recidivism—due to a criminal record, their job application is met with greater scrutiny. They’re 5x more likely to be unemployed and are at greater risk of committing offenses out of survival.

The good news—employment is the single most important influence on decreasing recidivism. As a hiring manager, business leader, or HR leader, this is where you can make an impact and help break the cycle of recidivism.
