John Grissim, Matt Hickey, Tammy Reed, Mary Childers, Shannon Mangiameli, and Scott Eagan attended Heartland Alliance’s Annual Dinner on October 11, 2018.
The highlight of the evening was a discussion with Mike Brady (CEO Greyston Bakery), Eddie Bocanegra (Senior Direction READI), READI Chicago participant Mendai, and Evelyn Diaz (President of Heartland Alliance). The panelists shared personal stories about how access to opportunity has shaped their lives, inspiring us all to think about how each one of us has the potential to be the difference in the lives of others and in our communities. READI Chicago and Greyston are helping to remove barriers to employment for those who are marginalized, including people with criminal backgrounds.
Unfortunately, we didn’t think to take a photo of group before we started to disperse for the evening, but we caught this one with Shannon, Matt, and John.
