Technology is changing the way we work in our country—which is requiring everyone from policymakers to private companies to evaluate how we supply the 21st century workforce with the skills necessary to compete in a global economy. In order to ensure that our growth also fuels economic success for our American workforce, we need a new social contract that relies on transformational thinking outlined in the Opportunity Project.

To kick off these conversations, the tech sector has come together under the leadership of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Technology Engagement Center (C_TEC) to form a New Economy Working Group aimed at tackling these issues. The New Economy Working Group will advocate for policies that endorse an innovative tech culture inherent in the new economy that will support America's workforce in the communities where they live.

The U.S. Chamber Technology Engagement Center (C_TEC) invites you to attend the New Economy Working Group’s kickoff event featuring a keynote from Department of Labor Secretary Alexander AcostaThe mission of the New Economy Working Group is to explore issues and dynamics of tech marketplace models in the sharing, gig, and on-demand economies and evaluate their impact on the American workforce.

The meeting will also feature a polling presentation by Michael Ramlet, CEO of Morning Consult, analyzing attitudes of new economy users and participants. C_TEC’s New Economy Working Group co-chairs, representatives from Expedia and Postmates, will also preview C_TEC’s 2018 new economy policy agenda. 

Please RSVP by Wednesday, February 21.
