The hybrid event featured an array of experts who presented mindsets, tools and strategies that can increase the likelihood of successful reintegration. The event began with a discussion of a successful Nevada model that brings together the corrections system, a nonprofit reentry program, and a local college working to aid reentering citizens with opportunities of higher education and vocational training. Researchers from the University of Wisconsin system shared research and findings that give insight into successful reintegration approaches.
