July Breakfast

Oregon second chance tour presents:

Creative Solutions for a tight market: second chance employment

Presented by: The Oregon Second Chance Tour/Dave's Killer Bread Foundation

Join us as we introduce you to three outstanding individuals who have beaten the odds and built thriving careers after a criminal conviction and incarceration. Hear first-hand from Portland businesses who seized an opportunity to hire a Second Chance candidate and are now champions of the practice for life. Hear targeted advice for getting started from experts in insurance, employment law, human resources, and background screenings. Watch as your assumptions about how risky and complex it is to hire a person with a background are challenged by our panelists’ insight and expertise. Prepare to be surprised, encouraged, and inspired.     


Learning Objectives:

  • Hear from current employers on how to find great talent to build your workforce in what has the stigma of being scary or overwhelming…hiring individuals with a criminal history.
  • An understanding of the enormous positive impact that any business can have on the lives and communities of people impacted by the criminal justice system – simply by giving them a chance.
  • A concise and uncomplicated overview of the steps necessary to hire individuals with criminal backgrounds successfully, including a series of examples that demonstrate how this practice does not have to be unsafe or overwhelming.

PHRMA is pleased to partner with the Oregon second chance tour to bring you our july breakfast program.

This program is unique and will be slightly different than most of our monthly programs. It will be a 2 hour program with 2 HRCI and SHRM credits (HRCI - pending until approved). The two hours are designed to give you the background information you need from current Oregon employers and employees in panel form. Then the next hour is designed to give you specific information on 'how' you can begin to implement these policy changes to your organization. Additionally, resources will be available to answer any specific questions you may have!
