Fair Chance Conversations: Patrice Funderburg on Building Community Partnerships

Patrice Funderburg, Executive Director of the Center for Community Transitions, speaks about building partnerships between employers and community-based organizations.

What is Fair Chance Hiring?

After decades of building high barriers to employment for people with past convictions, companies are increasingly recognizing that there is a motivated and productive talent pool waiting on the sidelines. The unemployment rate for individuals that were formerly incarcerated is 5x higher than their peers, yet research shows that employment outcomes are equally strong -- and in some cases stronger -- for people with past justice involvement. Fair Chance Hiring helps maximize access to talent for employers while ensuring that past convictions do not prevent qualified people from joining the workforce.
