In a recent interview with Thrive Global, Jenny Kim, deputy general counsel and vice president, public policy at Koch, offered several ideas for people in communities and government to make a difference.

“I would encourage politicians and all individuals to visit a prison and engage with the inmates. You will find yourself questioning every assumption that you had about them and who they are,” Kim said.

She also recommended that policymakers develop and implement more effective data structures to so that resources are maximized, and programs can be more effective.
