    at Job Service ND

    1350 32nd St S.

    To Register:  Hiring Felons & Creating an All-Inclusive Culture


    Program Summary 

    There are 30,000 open jobs in North Dakota, and felons transitioning out of prison can help close this gap. However, if you hire them, then what? This presentation talks about how human resources can help erase the stigma with hiring felons, as well as create a work environment that supports all people, through grace and communication.


    Learning Objectives

     

    This will cover the following topics:

    1.       Change possible attitudes of fear to an attitude of acceptance of a felon

    2.       Build understanding of how to create an environment of transparency

    3.       Creating empathy skills to give candidates a chance to explain themselves in an interview

    4.       Knowledge of how to create channels of communication that are open and free from judgement


    About the Speaker:

    Adam Martin is not your typical entrepreneur, business owner, and non-profit founder. He’s dedicated his life to making sure Felons get a fair shot at theirs.
    If you met Adam, you would know within minutes that he has a keen business mind, a pulse on what the future will hold, and a strong passion for criminal justice reform. If you were to look into Adam’s background, you would find a lengthy trail of breadcrumbs that would lead you to the community driven man he is today. Five felonies, multiple misdemeanors, and too many infractions to speak of. A career criminal, a trouble maker, and a nuisance. That is, until a few business leaders, mentors, and friends, saw potential instead of a criminal record. They saw someone who had Hustle and humility, instead of a risky person to be associated with.

    Named after the F5 “reset” button on a computer, it reminds us all “hit the reset” when we think about people with a criminal background. That button is a powerful tool, and an inspirational mentality. Adam Martin founded F5 Project in
    2016, after he was asked to be the keynote speaker for the United Way fundraising campaign in Fargo, ND. Through his personal story of homelessness, moving from job to job, criminal activities, and being a “product of the system,” he had first-hand knowledge of gaps when it came to services offered by local communities for people wanting to make a positive change in their lives. Especially when it came to people transitioning from incarceration.

    The 5-time Felon, turned professional salesman, decided to be the catalyst that his local community needed. Adam quit an amazing job in the technology sector, to start a non-profit. F5 Project sought out to help people that were coming directly out of jail, and prison. Having served time himself, he knew that people had serious roadblocks as soon as they took their first step out of being locked up. Through F5’s 5 pillars, (Communication, Housing, Employment, Healthy Socialization, Transportation) Adam has been able to help over 300 Felons successfully have a second chance at a better life. “With the smallest of help, these men and women have enough drive and energy to make an astounding, positive, impact on their community” Martin Says. Adam views the world from a positive lens. He sets out to prove the impossible - possible. From homelessness, to helping enterprise-level customers make strategic technology decisions on the daily, is part of the impossible.”

    Adam Martin is doing everything he can to ensure that felons get a fair shake. F5 Project is in 5 cities over 2 states, and looks to continue the mission of helping felons across the U.S.. Changing the world’s perception of Felons, one day at a time.

    “The best part, is when I get to see the positive change in someone’s family, employer, or community!” “It’s the catalyst. It’s the Hustle and Hard Work, It’s Felons helping Felons.”
