Learn how  your chamber can increase public safety and help businesses grow their applicant pool in a tightening labor market.

Fair Chance Hiring refers to policies that delay inquiries into a job applicant's criminal record until they have an opportunity to introduce themselves and their qualifications for the job. Employment has been shown to help reduce the likelihood that someone leaving jail or prison will reoffend, keeping communities safer and building a more inclusive regional economy. Hear about how Tina Wirth from the JAX Chamber worked with businesses and nonprofit partners to launch “Project Open Door” in their region and how Andy Johnston at the Grand Rapids Chamber works with Heather Garretson at Talent 2025 to increase the skilled labor pool in Western Michigan through fair chance hiring.
