Gov. Kim Reynolds is encouraging employers and human resources managers to attend the Employer and Reentry Breakfast Roundtable on Nov. 6 to learn about the employment opportunities available with formerly incarcerated individuals. The half-day event will take place at the Iowa Correctional Institution for Women in Mitchellville from 8 a.m. to noon. The roundtable will feature presentations and discussions about recruiting and training practices, apprenticeship programs and incentives available to employers who hire returning citizens. Iowa Corrections Director Beth Skinner said job training is emphasized in each of the state’s correctional facilities. “We have thousands of returning citizens every year that are ready to get to work with employers that are willing to give them the opportunity,” Skinner said in a news release. “When given the chance, many of these people will make excellent additions to the workforce around our state.” A link to the online registration is available at Those with additional questions about the event may contact Richelle Seitz at
