We began with a comprehensive review of more than 20 existing frameworks and definitions. We then hosted a series of conversations with leaders across sectors, including labor, advocacy, business, research, workforce development, investment, and philanthropy, who have worked to advance good jobs, hearing their priorities and perspectives on what defines a good job and what would make a new statement effective. Based on that work, we drafted an initial statement, which we then shared for additional feedback.

We are especially grateful to the Families and Workers Fund Essential Leaders Council for sharing insights, and to the Aspen Institute Business and Society Program and JUST Capital for co-hosting feedback sessions with business leaders.

The Aspen Institute Economic Opportunities Program and the Families and Workers Fund are deeply thankful to the following individuals, who took time to read and provide comments and feedback on the Statement on Good Jobs. Their input informed our definition of good jobs and helped shape the statement. Please note these acknowledgements do not imply sign-on or support of the statement.
