We are a business consultancy focused on building bridges in the social impact space. We have a special focus on early-stage companies and non-profits at the intersection of education, workforce, and entrepreneurship.
The Future of Our Work is now - and the full potential of what it can and should be must be driven by the broadest collective of NEW voices and ideas. Working World exists to ensure we all find our purpose in the future of our work.
We work across the spectrum - with employers, social service organizations, schools, community colleges, philanthropy - to build joint ventures that redesign access to our workforce with young people at the center.
