I would like to introduce to you Ms. Charlotte Garnes one of our Virtual Re-Entry Conference and Resource Fair speakers.
Ms. Garnes received her undergraduate degree in Criminal Justice from Georgia Southern University in Statesboro, GA and her Master of Arts in Counseling from Webster University in Columbia, SC. She has co-launched Reintegrated Voices, an organization that specializes in training those formerly incarcerated on how to use their voices and experiences to provide them with a platform for success.
Innovative Staffing Solutions, launched in 2020 and headed by Ms. Garnes, will staff and assist in employing formerly incarcerated/directly impacted individuals. She will also train businesses and organizations in hiring those who have been formerly incarcerated/directly impacted to ensure successful reintegration into the workforce environment. With her background in the Mental Health profession, Ms. Garnes is also a Champion for Change in educating others on the importance of mental health care after incarceration and helping others to understand the “realness” of Post Incarceration Syndrome and its affects- both personally and professionally.
She volunteers with an array of organizations, stemming from United Way to Prison to PhD. Ms. Garnes is proud to be a part of the Just Leadership 2020 Leading with Conviction Cohort. She serves as a mentor to young women across the globe who are advocates for criminal justice, social and healthcare change. Ms. Garnes also sits on the board for the Mississippi Center for Re-Entry, Liberty County Re-Entry Coalition, Carnegie Writers, and ReStore Her. In her spare time, Ms. Garnes enjoys reading, traveling, writing and motivating others to be their best selves!
Ms. Garnes will be presenting on Broken: Behind and Beyond the Bars on Saturday, August 15 at 9:13 a.m.
