Rework America offering a vision as well as partnerships to connect Americans to opportunity America s Moment is a call to participate in the most vital undertaking for America in the 21st Century said Zoë Baird CEO and president of Markle who leads Rework America and who wrote the book s preface It is unacceptable in our nation for economic well being to be out of reach for so many hard

matching Americans to opportunities through new credential systems that recognize an individual s abilities and by providing transparent and accessible information on skills required by employers Creating more jobs in America by linking American small businesses and entrepreneurs to the world of buyers for goods and services Creating growth potential for job creating small businesses by

they need it The daunting challenges of the new economy demand new ideas new types of leadership and new partnerships both public and private said co author and California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom Business education and government leaders can work collaboratively to grow our economy invest in education and create good jobs We have to step up and take responsibility if we want to prepare the workforce of tomorrow America s Moment shows us the steps that America must take to turn today s challenges into opportunities said co author Geoffrey Canada president of the non profit Harlem Children s Zone The digital technology revolution has given us incredible new tools for learning and ways to turn the corner on the financial anxiety and job insecurity that are haunting so many Americans We now have the ability to expand the number of pathways to learning and to rethink how every individual can be ensured of a pathway to opportunity and employment explained ASU President and

demonstrated knowledge America s Moment serves as an important reminder that we are stronger as a nation when everyone gets an equal chance to achieve success said co author Howard Schultz chief executive officer and chairman Starbucks With millions of Americans completely disconnected from the economy we need the leadership creativity and courage of the private sector working with communities and everyday citizens to create meaningful lifelong opportunities for all Technology and globalization are not our biggest challenge they are our greatest opportunity The world economy is set to more than triple in size in the next 15 years said Robert K Steel co author of America s Moment and CEO Perella Weinberg Partners Looking at the Internet alone there were a billion users in 2006 now there are three billion and growing American small businesses can use openings created by the Internet for much more digitized commerce They can produce goods and services that are valued around the world and connect directly to millions of potential new international customers Technology and platforms have created the opportunity for small and medium size businesses to connect with and sell to customers anywhere in the world something which was completely unheard of 20 or 30 years ago said co author James Manyika Director McKinsey Global Institute They will be the engine that powers America s future growth The exponentially expanding capabilities of information technology have precipitated the greatest economic transformation since the Industrial Revolution said Craig Mundie president of Mundie Associates former Chief Research and Strategy Officer for Microsoft and co author of the book We need to rethink how we optimally invest going forward to innovate in education training and credentialing And leaders need to shine a light on the ideas and policies that will secure our economic future and most importantly recognize the very real dangers to our economy and national security that will come from continued inaction We must ensure that all Americans especially Americans in underserved communities have full access to the tools of the digital revolution said co author Antonia Hernandez President and CEO California Community Foundation Leaders across sectors must prioritize investing in these communities by expanding programs that make the Internet widely available that provide caring mentors and that help at risk young people develop their untapped potential and learn valued skills America has come through profound economic transformations before and we can successfully do it again said co author and Markle Visiting Director Philip Zelikow We reworked American institutions when we transitioned from an agrarian society to the industrial age This is what is needed today A number of programs will be forthcoming from Rework America and its partners to help create scalable actions A program expected to be unveiled later this month will provide cutting edge technology tools and resources to benefit middle skill job seekers employers and educational providers in partnership with local governments And in the coming months Rework America will focus on driving actions across the country and injecting the unique opportunities of the digital economy into the 2016 presidential election conversation How can there be so many paths to opportunity with so few people travelling them asked Ms Baird Imagine the America we want to live in with good jobs and ways to prepare for them opportunities to build businesses the

REWORK AMERICA Markle Economic Future Initiative NEW YORK NY During the closing plenary of the 2014 Clinton Global Initiative CGI Annual Meeting President Bill Clinton today announced REWORK AMERICA the Markle Economic Future Initiative s CGI Commitment to Action REWORK AMERICA is an extraordinary partnership focused on the changes brought about by today s networked world The Markle Economic Future Initiative will help drive innovations that expand opportunities for employment and broaden ways for all Americans to learn and train for the work of the future Co chaired by Markle CEO and President Zoë Baird and Starbucks chairman president and ceo Howard Schultz the Markle Economic Future Initiative brings together a broad collaboration of entrepreneurs technology leaders CEOs educators community and religious leaders and other partners to empower all Americans to succeed in today s digital economy The members believe it will take strong leadership in these transformational times to advance actions that help all Americans gain access to the resources they need to share in the benefits of the new economy Markle is committing 50 million dollars to REWORK AMERICA The members of REWORK AMERICA share a vision of a hopeful future for our nation one in which the changes brought about by a networked world work for us and where more Americans are optimistic about their chances for learning training and employment In a collective point of view reworkamerica org the members offer their thoughts for pairing ideas with powerful actions to accelerate innovations that return opportunities to all Americans While uncertainty and pessimism about the future remain high there is a strong foundation on which to rebuild In fact 70 percent of middle class Americans in a recent Markle commissioned national survey said they want the chance to advance their education and training to learn new skills in math science and technology Eighty six percent agreed that learning throughout one s lifetime is critical to keeping up in today s world And nearly 9 out of 10 middle class Americans expressed support for access to resources that can help American small businesses expand into new markets There is no challenge more important for the strength of our nation than the challenge of advancing economic opportunity for all Americans said Markle CEO and President and Markle Economic Future Initiative co chair Zoë Baird Americans are known for their creativity and entrepreneurship By mastering innovations in learning and business growth we can reach for a better future in which all Americans prosper in the networked world Technology is making it easier than ever to tap into learning that is more flexible affordable and personalized It also is creating new ways for Americans to work or to start and grow a business aided by tech platforms that can bring the world s growing middle class as potential customers to our tablets We need to enable Americans to connect with buyers around the world and to bring the operational power and insight of large businesses into the hands of small entrepreneurs and main street businesses And 21st century learning options are needed to develop credentials that correlate with work that will carry Americans into the future and enable people to keep learning throughout their lives I have long believed the best investment a leader can make is in their own people and their futures said Howard Schultz chairman president and ceo of Starbucks and co chair of the Markle Economic Future Initiative Today too many of our youth believe the American Dream is impossible to achieve It s more important now than ever for business community and government leaders to come together to create pathways to opportunity for young Americans to become the kind of leaders who will move our country forward Together we can create a future where the doors to opportunity are shut on no one and access to the American Dream is open to everyone Markle has long taken a leadership role with collaborations that use technology tools to address previously intractable public problems including overcoming obstacles to economic growth The recent Starbucks Arizona State University partnership inspired by the Markle Initiative is one example of a groundbreaking prototype for creating opportunities that rethink learning skill development and readiness for the work of the future The innovative plan will provide access to an online college education at ASU for thousands of Starbucks partners employees in the United States Collaborations with other educational institutions and businesses are also currently being developed to help Americans navigate the new economy We are in a period of momentous change in America said Purdue University President and Initiative member Mitchell E Daniels Jr former governor of Indiana and former director of the Office of Management and Budget One of our most important assets has always been the knowledge and skills of our workforce and the nation s economic success will depend on our effectiveness at educating students in an increasingly technological world But we can no longer rely on traditional strengths alone to prepare for the 21st century economy We must reimagine the way we teach and use today s new tools to design educational platforms that foster the skills today s employers say they prize most Many students are leaving college laden with debt often to discover that employment is yet another challenge said ASU President and Initiative member Michael Crow But this doesn t have to be We now have the ability to expand the pathways to learning and to rethink how every individual can be ensured of a pathway to opportunity and employment With new learning technologies and tools we can advance flexible and personalized learning and generate new market ready credentials based on demonstrated knowledge rather than only the more traditional pathways of post secondary education These new opportunities allow learning to be pursued at all times and in any venue More than ever education is the single most reliable way to break the cycle of generational poverty said Geoffrey Canada Initiative member and president of the non profit Harlem Children s Zone The digital technology revolution has given us incredible new tools for learning but it also raises the educational bar for future generations For that reason it is incumbent on our country to increase access to all of our young people and Rework America is a terrific step in that direction Initiative member and chairman and CEO of salesforce com Marc Benioff said We re in the middle of an incredible transformation driven by new social mobile and connected cloud technologies By embracing these new technologies we can prepare our youth for the jobs of tomorrow and encourage entrepreneurs to build new companies to propel our economy forward In order to restore the American dream in order to bring back hope and promise for so many people in this nation we need strong visionary leadership said Reverend Calvin Butts III pastor of The Abyssinian Baptist Church of New York City president of the State University of New York College at Old Westbury and Initiative member Leadership has to be more than just strong and visionary in the sense of rhetoric it has to be ready to take risks Americans have always been good at innovation and seizing a challenge and making it work for them said Initiative member and Leavitt Partners Chairman Michael Leavitt the former governor of Utah and a former cabinet official But we need to recognize this is a genuine challenge and that we need to take steps to help build new jobs and new skills for the future And the sooner we do this the better For more information visit www reworkamerica org and www markle org Media Contact Lisa MacSpadden or William Herbig 212 713 7632 email protected About Markle Markle works to realize the
