About Us

WHY THE WORKERS LAB EXISTS

As a laboratory, we relentlessly look for opportunities to be curious, to test new and old approaches to the challenges of our time, and share what we learn with others. We know that people take great pride in their work and spend the best hours of their lives at work. The Workers Lab supports our partners as they test new ideas designed to dramatically improve working conditions for working people. These workers deserve more than merely making ends meet. They deserve to live lives of opportunity, mobility, and dignity.

WHAT IS THE WORKERS LAB?

We documented the first day of our first program session in Oakland, CA. As an accelerator that invests in a cross-section of innovators and activists, we're learning as we go. Bringing together entrepreneurs, organizers, technologists, and advocates to create scalable and self-sustaining solutions that improve conditions for working people requires an ability to suspend disbelief and a commitment to being curious.
