Working with Individuals, Employers to Unlock Purpose, Potential, Passion, and Success
For over 30 years, Cara Collective has worked directly with individuals experiencing a number of barriers to employment work through their challenges, invest in their development, and get great jobs. They’ve also worked with employers to help them rethink their hiring procedures so that they don’t miss hidden gems in their communities for any number of reasons.
In this conversation, Kathleen St. Louis Caliento, the president and CEO of Cara Collective, shares her personal story to this role, the work of Cara Collective, and the stunning success they’ve had for over 8,000 individuals in helping place them not just in 13,000 jobs, but in jobs where they are more likely to persist and do work that matches their own sense of purpose. We explore what they’ve learned, how they’ve sharpened their process, their outcomes, and more in this conversation that was sponsored by the Charles Koch Foundation.
