The benefits of employing people with a history of offending. There is a diverse pool of talent just waiting to be tapped. 

More than 11 million people in the UK have a criminal record1. Yet three-quarters of employers admit to discriminating against applicants with a criminal conviction.2 
 
 
Ex-offenders have a range of skills and experience that can help address skills shortages in your organisation and contribute to a diverse workforce.
Join us to understand how your business can benefit from a diverse pool of talent while also benefitting individuals and communities. 
 
  • Be inspired by examples from businesses and community partners.
  • Understand how your business can support this issue and why it should.
  • Make new contacts to make it happen.


Who should attend? 
This free event is of particular interest to HR and CSR managers from across all sectors.
