Future of Work Initiative

The Future of Work Initiative is a nonpartisan effort to identify concrete ways to strengthen the social contract in the midst of sweeping changes in the workplace and workforce. The Initiative is focused on two key objectives: first, to advance and protect the economic interests of Americans in the independent workforce, including those in the rapidly growing on-demand economy; and second, to inspire a 21st-century capitalism which rewards work, fuels innovation, and promises a brighter future for businesses and workers alike. The Initiative is driven by the leadership of Honorary Co-Chairs Senator Mark Warner and Purdue University President Mitch Daniels with Co-Chairs John Bridgeland and Bruce Reed.

The Future of Work Initiative is made possible through the generous philanthropic support of a broad range of foundations, individuals, and corporate partners, including: Emanuel J. Friedman Philanthropies, The Hitachi Foundation, The Ford Foundation, The Kresge Foundation, The Markle Foundation, The Peter G. Peterson Foundation, The Pew Charitable Trusts, The Prudential Foundation, The Rockefeller Foundation, Brian Sheth, Sean Parker, Accenture, Apple, BlackRock, and others.
