On Monday, November 5th, the MAX Leadership Network will reconvene to learn more about Atlanta-based efforts underway to help our region’s returning citizens re-enter the workforce. The meeting will be hosted by the Technical College System of Georgia (TCSG).
Network members will have the opportunity to hear from Doug Ammar about the work underway through the Georgia Justice Project to represent and support individuals in the criminal justice system and reduce barriers to reentry. Updates will also be provided by Joe Dan Banker with TCSG and Keren Cadet with The Center for Working Families about efforts underway through their entities to help returning citizens and those who seek to engage them in their workforce. These updates will be followed by an interactive discussion in round-robin style during which network members can share about efforts underway through their organizations.
