The New Talent Playbook: Removing Barriers for Formerly Incarcerated Professionals
12/07/2017 @ 5:30 pm$35
Unloop is a nonprofit enabling people who have been in prison to succeed in careers in tech. The event will begin with a panel featuring formerly incarcerated software developers and the companies that hire them, followed by food and drink over a hackathon to create a playbook for companies approaching hiring people with convictions. Finally, there will be an opportunity to network with the inspirational tech and social justice leaders that make up the Unloop community! Whether you work in tech or just want to support individuals as they re-enter their communities after incarceration, this will be a night of important conversation and community building.
