Fair Chance Hiring in the City of Angels

Published by USC Bedrosian Center on

Victoria Ciudad-Real, John Roberson III, Gary Painter, and Jeffery Wallace join us for a conversation about Fair Chance Hiring. We’ll get to the root of their collaborative project, “Accelerating Fair Chance Hiring Among Los Angeles Employers.”
The project, in which the Price Center partnered with LeadersUp and the State of California Workforce Accelerator Fund, used an employer survey and co-design sessions with Angeleno employers to determine the best way forward with Fair Chance hiring processes.
We unearth how employers can benefit from this project, how Fair Chance Hiring benefits our communities, and why this practice will be vital for a sustainable future.
