People across Colorado face a variety of barriers to long-term stable employment including recovery from addiction, criminal records, inability to attain needed skills, and cultural and language barriers.  Our panel will offer their stories regarding how they are each helping build careers and meet personnel needs in a wide range of industries.   

Join us on the 30th to learn how you can help hurdle barriers to employment with a spectrum of capital solutions, from philanthropic grants for nonprofits and scholarship programs, to loans and equity investments in private companies, to addressing the issue at scale through public markets.
