The Markle Foundation works to realize the potential of technology to achieve breakthroughs in addressing some of the nation’s most pressing issues as well as address the challenges it presents. Markle challenges itself and diverse partners to deploy their varied expertise to identify solutions and achieve systemic change. Today as advanced technology and automation change the very nature of work, Markle’s priority is advancing solutions towards a skills-based labor market that will enable U.S. workers to transition to the opportunities of the digital economy. Markle’s current workforce initiatives—Rework America and Skillful—build on Markle’s previous success in creating the policy and technology architecture that has enabled improvements in healthcare, national security, and access to the Internet.
The Rework America and Skillful initiatives aim to enable all workers, especially the almost 70% of U.S. workers/adults without a four-year college degree, to have the opportunity to succeed in our increasingly digital labor market. We aspire to make change at the national scale, to accelerate the efforts of others, and to have impact beyond the reach of organizations working alone or in silos. We aim to overhaul how employers hire and train, to reshape how people view their career possibilities, and to unlock career opportunities for millions of people who may otherwise be unable to access the futures they deserve.
