About this talk

In February, Indeed announced that it was investing $10 million to launch “Essentials to Work”, a multi-prong investment to help struggling job seekers in the U.S. gain access to technology, transportation and criminal record-clearing services. This week on Here to Help, Indeed CEO Chris Hyams catches up with the woman at Indeed who leads this effort, Parisa Fatehi-Weeks. Fatehi-Weeks, who is the Board President of the Workers Defense Project and is on the board of HousingWorks Austin, speaks about the goals set by the Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) team at Indeed to help 30M job seekers facing barriers get hired. She also speaks about what fair chance hiring is and discusses Indeed’s partnership with Lyft’s Jobs Access Program.
