Technology is the most disruptive force in human history, ushering in a new era of unprecedented health, convenience, and prosperity. Yet many people are not experiencing the benefits of this progress, despite actively seeking to more fully participate in and profit from new educational, financial, and work opportunities.
At MIT, we believe that inclusive innovation – the use of technology to generate increased economic opportunity for moderate and low income earners – is an imperative with a tight deadline. The question we should be asking ourselves at this historic moment isn’t “what is technology going to do to our economy and society,” but rather “what will we do with technology?”
Our vision is an economy that works for all. Our mission is to accelerate the success of the
changemakingentrepreneurs that are making that vision a reality,and to drive a solutions-oriented conversation about the future of work.
The IIC Global Team is passionate about accelerating the future of work movement to create an economy that works for all in the digital era. Based at the MIT Initiative on the Digital Economy, the Global Team carries out central operations.
The Regional Team is comprised of dedicated people from diverse organizations, backgrounds, and companies across the world. Regional Team members spearhead the IIC’s effort to source and celebrate changemaking organizations within their respective regions.
