Justice Reskill is on a mission to dissolve the wealth gaps affecting the justice-involved community nationwide. Through its skills-based curriculum, cohort-style learning community, and career-focused programming — all designed exclusively for those directly disadvantaged by the justice system — the organisation is opening doors to long-term prosperity and giving individuals the resources and support necessary to keep them open throughout their lifetimes. In this article, as part of our focus on 'Second Chances', Meaningful Business member, and Justice Reskill's Founder, Aaron Clark, shares why opening company doors to this population goes beyond merely diversifying the workplace, as there is an ‘enormous economic case’ that underpins its success.
