Ending Poverty through Transformational Employment

Location: Grand Ballroom (2nd Floor)

Finding a job can be tough, and even harder when you’re also struggling with recovery, whether from addiction, incarceration, or simply loss of self – an unemployment dilemma that often can be generational.Cara (Gaelic for “friend”) helps job-seeking adults secure and sustain gainful employment — interrupting generational poverty – by addressing poverty of esteem before poverty of assets, informing the role of socio-emotional skills in Cara’s work. Cara’s self-actualization coaching model builds workplace competencies through experiential and immersive learning – advancing the transforming effect of employment in restoring hope and prosperity to individuals, families, and Chicago.
