Are you a cannabis leader who wants your company and brand to be part of ending the harms created by the War On Drugs, but don’t know where to start? Are you feeling that now, more than ever, in this time of awakening around racial injustice it is time to change and reform your policies to support communities most harmed by mass incarceration?
Join Root & Rebound for a training on Fair Chance Hiring–hiring policies that require all applicants be given the opportunity to introduce themselves and their qualifications for the job before running a background check and assessing a conviction. Through this training, company leaders and HR professionals will learn what Fair Chance Hiring means and looks like in practice, how to make this a reality at your cannabis company, and the benefits of employing people with records–both for you and your brand. This training is also critical for all cannabis companies to assure they are in compliance with state law, as states across the country, including California, have passed Fair Chance Hiring laws and made strict practices the rule for all companies to follow.
This training is ideal for employers and workforce development professionals in the cannabis industry, as well as service providers and attorneys who support people with criminal records. Anyone interested in this topic is welcome.
