Join Natalie Wenzler of TechPoint to learn how to make inclusive changes to your job postings through interactive workshops, change management, and community engagement. Natalie is a former Probation Officer so she has lots of ideas about how to specifically help Probation and Community Corrections implement improved response rate to job postings.
