The Milwaukee Reentry Network (MRN) – consisting of partners within governmental agencies and local nonprofits including the Center for Self-Sufficiency, hosted an Employer Summit in November 2013. The Summit was both informative and inspirational and included 28 business owners and human resources representatives from across Milwaukee County. The MRN’s goal was to provide the business community with a sound understanding of the benefits, both to their respective companies and the community, of hiring former offenders.
