We sit at the intersection of employers, policy makers, and job seekers, and seek to share this set of unique perspectives.
Why we research and advocate
To promote a more equitable workforce system, we advocate for improved policy and employer approaches, complementing what we learn from in-country programs with research and data insights that can inform policymakers, employers, funders, and other workforce programs.
Launching a Tech Hiring Revolution
To help address this critical challenge, we launched what we believe is the most comprehensive global survey to date of entry-level tech talent. Participants included more than 2,600 jobseekers, another 1,275 jobholders already in tech roles and 1,325 tech and non-tech companies, spanning eight countries: Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, India, Mexico, the United Kingdom, and the United States.Learn more

But if we stick with the status quo, a bad situation will only get worse. That is the key takeaway from a global survey—the first of its kind—to provide an in-depth view of individuals aged 45-65 seeking or working in entry-level and intermediate roles.Learn more
