Going to Work with a Record - A webinar presented by Center for Employment Opportunities 

Date: Wednesday, June 24, 2020 
Time: 12:00 p.m. - 1:30 p.m. EST
Length: 1.5 hours
Online webinar
Christine Kidd, National Director of Program Innovation, Center for Employment Opportunities and a related subject matter expert.

This hour and a half webinar will address important considerations and barriers to reemployment for justice involved individuals, with a focus on those individuals recently released from prison or jail.

Key learning objectives include:

  • A deeper understanding of the reentry population (gender, education levels, geography)
  • The demands of probation and parole supervision, especially as they relate to employment
  • How to address the “conviction question” in the interview process; issues around Selective Service and eligibility for federal funding.

This webinar is ideal for frontline staff, recruiters, and human resource professionals looking to train and hire individuals with a justice involved history. There will be an opportunity for Q&A with the experts to support the learning.


Christine Kidd is the National Director of Program Innovation for the Center of Employment Opportunities (CEO).  Ms. Kidd's work focuses on identifying promising practices from within and outside CEO, scaling those practices across CEO’s 25+ offices, and sharing CEO's knowledge with allies in the reentry employment field. Ms Kidd will be a facilitator through all six webinars, tying together themes and lessons learned, while supported by subject matter experts in each topic to be addressed.
