ABI to Participate in DOC/IWD Business Advisory Team Meeting Next Week

November 27, 2019

ABI has been invited by the Iowa Department of Corrections and Iowa Workforce Development to be a member of the Adult Re-entry and Employment Business Advisory Team. The first meeting will take place Wednesday, Dec. 4. The Adult Re-entry and Employment strategic planning’s primary goal is to reduce recidivism levels by increasing positive employment outcomes for returning citizens. The role of the advisory group is to provide guidance on employment issues affecting returning citizens, including gaps in skills development, access to liveable-wage careers and mitigation of barriers to employment. A recap will be provided in next week’s newsletter. For more information, contact Brad Hartkopf.
