5 Reasons You Can’t Miss Checkr Forward 2021
Checkr Forward is almost here, and it’s the can’t-miss virtual conference for anyone looking to successfully navigate the future of work. It’s a chance for hiring, compliance and technology leaders to gather and share insights, experiences, and best practices for moving the HR and background check industries forward.
If you’re on the fence about signing up for the event on November 9 and 10, we’ve compiled five of the (many) reasons you’ll want to grab a virtual seat at this free event before it’s too late.
1. Get inspired to make change by orator and peace advocate Dr. Bernice A King
We’re thrilled to have Dr. Bernice A. King, CEO of the Center for Nonviolent Social Change (The King Center) and the youngest daughter of civil rights leaders Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Coretta Scott King, serve as one of our keynote speakers. King will host a conversation about the importance of increasing diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workforce and how we can all get more involved in the movement for change.
2. Discover strategies for creating a more inclusive workplace with award-winning inclusion strategist Ruchika Tulshyan
Tulshyan, an author and the founder of inclusion strategy firm Candour, will deliver a keynote address around building an inclusion plan that advances belonging for all people – including women of color – in the workplace. Known for her intersectional and data-driven approach to introducing change in the workplace, she’ll talk through various ways to strengthen your own diversity, equity and inclusion strategy.
3. Find a session (or several) that fits your needs
We’ve structured Checkr Forward around the theme of “People, Possibilities and Progress,” which illustrates the ways in which we can advance the HR and background check industries. Within these three tracks, we’ve built sessions that tackle topics from different perspectives. So whether you’re a candidate, HR leader or compliance expert at an enterprise organization or small business, you’ll find sessions catered to your interests and objectives.
4. Learn about the next generation of fair chance hiring from thought leaders
Checkr’s mission is to use technology to create a fair chance for all, and we’ve dedicated several sessions to covering this complex and important topic. We’re gathering together experts with a variety of worldviews – from advocates to thought leaders to the formerly incarcerated – who will share firsthand insights into the true value fair chance hiring brings to an organization. You’ll walk away knowing how technology can help businesses make more informed decisions about diverse talent, ways to advance inclusion during the onboarding process, and how to implement fairer hiring practices for all individuals.
5. Understand the cutting-edge technology shaping the future of work
The pandemic has permanently altered the way the world does business–and there’s no going back. Our sessions on the “future of work” will feature experts and thought leaders from organizations of all sizes who are adopting change and disrupting their industries along the way. They’ll cover how to embrace workplace flexibility, tap unconventional talent pools, enhance both the recruiter and candidate experience, and successfully scale your organization.
Hopefully by now you’re convinced that Checkr Forward is a must-attend event for you and your team. You won’t want to miss your chance to learn, network and discuss the industry’s most important topics with peers, experts and inspirational figures alike. We’ll see you there!
