The future is now. Let’s get to work.
Together, we can ensure everyone is prepared for rapid technological change.
What is Future Works?
Future Works Alliance PHL is a movement powered by employers, workers, civic leaders, citizens and students. We are inspired by technology, yet mindful of job loss for low-wage workers, especially women and people of color. We work to:
- Align and share best practices
- Consult experts about emerging technology
- Collaborate openly on problems and solutions
- Design a comprehensive resiliency strategy
We strive to strengthen the talent pool and increase opportunities so more people have a better quality of life.
Why is this work important?
Technology is core to how we live and work. Various industries adopt technology in varying ways, but women and people of color are most vulnerable to disruption. It’s imperative we work together to respond and prepare for change. Our quality of life in coming decades depends on collaborative actions we take now. The cost of business as usual is high: growing poverty, greater racial inequity, social unrest, and unrealized potential.
