Nonprofits across the country have been testing out a new form of aid recently: just give people cash, instead of filtering aid through food vouchers or something else specific. And it's been working. Now, a new direct cash transfer pilot is focusing on a very specific group: those who are being released from prison under a California law that gives a second chance to people who received a particularly excessive sentence, or who’ve shown that they’ve been rehabilitated. The pilot will give 50 people released under that law $2,750 over three payments. The nonprofits behind the pilot hope it could spur more prosecutors to take advantage of that law and put people up for release, since they may be more confident these formerly incarcerated people won’t reoffend if their basic needs are met. Read more about how the pilot works here.

The gender gap in workplace burnout: What you need to know
The seventh annual Women in the Workplace report from McKinsey & Company and LeanIn.org reveals that the gender gap in burnout is getting wider.
This year, 42% of women and 35% of men say they’re burned out, in comparison to 32% and 28%, respectively, in 2020. 
And in terms of representation among workers, the broken rung on the ladder still exists: For every 100 men promoted to manager, only 86 women are promoted. 
This is an improvement from the pre-COVID work landscape in 2019 when only 72 women were promoted to or hired for manager for every 100 men.
