Event

Ban the Box
Ban the Box. A NEW PANEL DISCUSSION FOR ORGANIZATIONS AND INDIVIDUALS INTERESTED IN LEARNING MORE ABOUT REMOVING THE CHECK BOX REGARDING CRIMINAL RECORDS AND DELAYING THE BACKGROUND CHECK INQUIRY UNTIL LATER IN THE HIRING PROCESS.

The forum will bring together panelists from a cross-section of professions, including government, academia, law, and small business to discuss the ramifications of prematurely or illegally considering conviction information, and the role it may play in preventing people with past convictions from receiving a fair chance.

Questions will be addressed by panel members who have had experience with implementing ban the box in their work places; who have had experience with the criminal justice system; or who are working to support those who are re-entering the community and seeking to be productive citizens.

As a number of local employers are implementing ban the box, others are looking for more direction. Additionally, many community members are seeking guidance on how they can be part of a movement to welcome back those who have been formerly involved in the criminal justice system and to ensure that they have a fair chance to work.  The Diversity Consortium of Tompkins County is sponsoring this forum to support this effort.

George Ferrari, Director, Community Foundation of Tompkins County will moderate this session.

Panelists include:

Khalil Bey, Ultimate Re-entry Opportunity Mentor Coordinator, Multicultural Resource Center

Laura Branca, Managing Partner, TFC Associates and Co-Owner of Moosewood, Inc.

Phoebe Brown, Ultimate Re-entry Opportunity Community Outreach Coordinator, Multicultural Resource Center

Amy Guererri, Commissioner of Personnel, Tompkins County Government

Jason M. Leifer, Attorney and Dryden Town Supervisor

Schelley Michell- Nunn, Director Human Services, City of Ithaca
