WorkRise engages a diverse group of stakeholders to inform our strategy and carry out our mission of rebuilding a more equitable labor market so that all workers have access to opportunity and upward mobility. Our Leadership Board, institutional partners, and other members of our network represent diverse perspectives across our core stakeholder communities. These communities include researchers and research institutions; employers and business networks; labor unions and worker advocates; leaders and practitioners in workforce development, economic development, and human services; policymakers at every level; and members of the philanthropic community.
Our stakeholders each have distinctive and, at times, divergent points of view, but they also share common ideas about how to create economic opportunity and mobility for workers in low-wage, low-quality jobs. By highlighting their unique perspectives, WorkRise aims to convey our inclusive and nonpartisan approach to developing evidence-based solutions for rebuilding a more equitable labor market.
