About the Innovative + Inclusive Economy Work Stream

In an economy increasingly driven by technology and innovation, inclusive innovation fosters more equitable participation; improves performance by ensuring a diversity of skills, knowledge, and perspectives; and broadens benefits beyond economic growth. Our current areas of focus include overcoming the digital divide; designing  job pathways and transitions for workers; closing pay, participation, and job quality gaps in the innovation economy; the impact of technology on work; and our flagship Inclusive Innovation Monitor. Through this workstream, we imagine a more inclusive and equitable economy and the policies and programs that will get us there.

Key research questions
  • How can we broaden access to opportunities — such as technology, education, employment, R+D, and funding — across demographics and regions? 
  • How can we ensure better equity within the innovation economy — including pay, job quality, and advancement opportunities?  
  • How can we ensure the results of innovation activity benefit the most people and do the least harm?
  • How can innovation policy support a strong economic recovery that is inclusive, equitable, and resilient?
