Ron Moelis Social Innovation Fellows Joseph Mahmud (’18), Steven Pacheco (’20), and Donauta Watson-Starcevic are changing the future of work. Their plan to develop mobile app CONNECTr, which helps individuals with criminal records find employers, won the Echoing Green Social Impact Challenge. Inspired by their own experiences, Mahmud, Pacheco and Watson-Starcevic want to see their app fight bias against the formerly incarcerated and give them hope.
