Gov. Reynolds Invites Employers to Employer and Reentry Roundtable

October 10, 2019

Gov. Reynolds on Wednesday announced a roundtable for employers at the Iowa Correctional Institution for Women in Mitchellville on Wednesday, Nov. 6, 2019. The event will be held from 8 a.m.-noon. Gov. Reynolds focused on second chances in her condition of the state address in January, and this event aligns with the goals of getting more Iowans into the workforce and giving those individuals with a criminal background a second chance. In the release, Gov. Reynolds stated: “By forging a partnership between the business community, the Department of Corrections, and Iowa Workforce Development, we can help formerly incarcerated individuals find a better path. Providing Iowa employers with a much-needed workforce while opening new doors for Iowans on the road to redemption is an obvious win-win.” Employers may register for the roundtable event at Eventbrite.  A link to the online registration will also be available at If you are interested in attending an event and have additional questions, please contact Richelle Seitz at
