Carol Fishman Cohen
CEO and Co-founder, iRelaunch
Carol Fishman Cohen, the pioneering career reentry expert, is the CEO and Co-founder of iRelaunch. iRelaunch works with employers worldwide to build and expand career reentry programs to hire professionals returning to work after extended leave. iRelaunch identifies talent for and trains hundreds of managers, recruiters and relauncher participants in these programs. iRelaunch's flagship event, the iRelaunch Return to Work Conference, brings together thousands of "relaunchers" with the world's leading employers that want to hire them. It has been running for 14 years.
iRelaunch supports a community of 100,000 relaunchers looking to return to work after career breaks from one to over 20 years for a wide range of reasons unrelated to their work performance. That's why this pool is consistently high caliber. iRelaunch's innovative #calloutyourbreak campaign encourages relaunchers to use LinkedIn's new "career break" profile building category to literally call out their breaks so employers with career reentry programs will know they are eligible.
