In the wake of Covid-19, the future of work will include small workshops and homework in ways we once never thought possible. Amidst this moment, Nest is scaling our work to ensure that all workers are protected and empowered through widespread recognition of their essential roles in the global economy.
Fueled by a belief in the opportunity that inclusive work has to advance businesses led by and employing women and BIPOC community members, Nest is leading a movement to champion handworkers around the globe. The confluence of advancing technology and the rise of homeworking present us with a unique opportunity to enable often overlooked creative entrepreneurs—including those establishing their “side hustle”—to achieve economic resilience for themselves, their families, and their communities.
As we enter our 15th year, Nest’s Inclusive Work Initiative will serve as the launchpad for a public campaign to bring unprecedented visibility and investment into the informal economy globally.
