Giving Compass' Take:
- Unfortunately, the dissemination of worker benefits currently excludes low-wage workers, workers of color, and workers in non-traditional work arrangements and requires more inclusivity.
- How can donors play a role in helping modernize worker benefits or bolster inclusion efforts?
- Lean more about rethinking worker benefits for an economy in flux.

Public and private benefits are crucial to a worker’s financial security, but the design and delivery of these benefits disproportionately exclude low-wage workers, workers of color, and workers in non-traditional work arrangements. How can we refresh and modernize these systems to the benefit of all workers and their families?
Would a new, integrated system of benefits guided by four key principles – people-centric, inclusive, portable and interoperable – be the pathway to an inclusive recovery and long-term prosperity for all workers in America? This event will introduce the work of the Benefits21 initiative and the holistic approach to financial security and economic mobility being undertaken by the Global Inclusive Growth Partnership.
Opening conversation with Rep. Suzan DelBene (D-WA) and Alastair Fitzpayne, Executive Director of the Future of Work Initiative. Benefits21 presentation by Sarika Abbi, Associate Director, Financial Security Program.
