About the Center

As disruptive technological innovation accelerates, how can we ensure that the benefits are more widely shared across the economy?

Technological innovation has transformed the American economy. It has helped businesses produce more with less. American ingenuity and innovation has benefited society in many ways. However, these benefits haven’t been equally shared by all segments of society.

The Center for the Future of Work at Carnegie Mellon University’s Heinz College is dedicated to exploring the impact of disruptive innovation on all sections of society and to developing policy interventions that ensure the benefits of these innovations are more widely shared.

Through the center, Carnegie Mellon University faculty and students will study the interaction between present and emerging technologies to develop intelligent public policy that will define the workplace of the future, and help workers of all skill level participate more fully in the new opportunities and prosperity that innovation brings.
