Spotlight Impact Story
Next Chapter is a nonprofit incubated at Slack that trains formerly incarcerated people, helping them get tech careers. To expand the program to more companies, Slack started a new joint initiative with the Aspen Institute, Rework Reentry, that aims to help the work scale by making it easier for other companies to do the same thing. The team will produce a “tactical playbook,” which shares challenges companies might face and strategies to overcome them. It also will organize events between tech leaders and justice-reform advocates, and will soon launch a series of short documentary films about what life is like after incarcerated people leave prison.
