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.
