The newly released interview discusses diversity hiring best practices for talent leaders, executives, and companies, with an emphasis on equity and inclusion for returning citizens.

According to a recent study, it can be difficult for ex-prisoners to find employment. Approximately 50% of ex-prisoners do not report any earnings for several years post-incarceration, and, of those that do find work, 50% earn less than $10,000 per year.

As part of GoodTime’s recent interview, Kenyatta Leal discusses the fears and stereotypes with which returning citizens are confronted when seeking employment. He also offers guidance for HR and recruitment professionals seeking to hire returning citizens.

Kenyatta Leal begins the interview by acknowledging the enduring stigma associated with ex-criminals, observing that such figures are subject to bias and can be seen as having little to contribute to society.

He then suggests that HR leaders have an important role to play in creating a safe and welcoming environment for returning citizens by helping current employees to overcome concerns or biases. In particular, Kenyatta Leal suggests that recruiters and HR professionals should acquaint themselves with the issue of justice reform.

Next Chapter, an organization developed by Kenyatta Leal, creates transition plans for returning citizens to enter the tech sector workforce. By providing support for candidates and engaging with the engineering teams of partner companies, the organization represents a viable means for returning citizens to find fulfilling employment.
