Our grant-making strategy is broken into three central interest areas: Learning, Workforce, and Infrastructure. In sum, this work is intended to find the solutions and support ways of thinking that will help us fulfill our mission to understand and shape the impact of technology on all aspects of our society. Learn more about each of our interest areas below.
Rapid changes in technology affect how and what we learn. Without adaptable skills, more and more people risk being left behind by digital transformation.
We support research, platforms, and programs that offer everyone the skills, tools, and opportunities they need to continue learning and adapting, and that are open, accessible, and innovative.
Everyone should be able to engage meaningfully in a rapidly changing, innovation-driven economy, but there’s a disconnect between education and application, and access to skillsets that will be relevant in the future economy is not widely available.
We support research on the changing nature of work, programs that equip people with future-relevant skills and access to career pathways, and initiatives that are driving systems change and broadening opportunity.
The internet and new technologies have changed the way we engage with both institutions and one another, and reshaped foundational elements that underpin our civil society.
We are actively seeking to understand the best opportunities for innovative and nimble philanthropy to make a difference in this emerging interest area.
