Data-Driven Solutions

The Center for Workforce Inclusion works with partners to build innovative, cutting-edge approaches to inclusion and workforce development; we provide training and guidance to bring low-income, older workers back to the workforce; and we advocate for policy and practice that better serves the needs of 40 million older workers. The Center specializes in working with and advocating for traditionally underserved groups: older people of color, women, Veterans, and those who were formerly incarcerated. 

In 2019, the Center launched CWI Labs as an innovation hub to unleash the entrepreneurial spirit necessary to propel a nationwide effort to educate employers and policymakers on the value that older workers contribute to a diverse workforce. CWI Labs convenes prominent stakeholders to discuss solutions; we educate employers and policymakers through events, and we enlist experts to share insights through our digital media network. In 2021 the Center launched the American Workforce Coalition to raise our collective voices to build a national movement around the value of our aging American workforce and more equitable solutions to workforce disparities.

CWI Labs is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
