About the Event
With the changing nature of work in America, the 20th century formula for providing protections and benefits to workers is falling behind 21st century innovation, and we must develop new ideas that can meet the long-term needs of workers and businesses alike. This event will explore how we might adapt the social contract for workers in America in a way that can make retirement benefits and protections more portable, with a focus on the policy challenges and opportunities to improve and adapt our current system.

The event will feature keynote remarks from The Honorable Phyllis C. Borzi, Assistant Secretary of Labor of the Employee Benefits Security Administration, and a panel discussion that includes essential voices in the conversation around the intersection between new modes of work and retirement security. The event will be hosted by Ida Rademacher, Executive Director of the Financial Security Program, and Bruce Reed and John Bridgeland, co-chairs of the Future of Work Initiative.

The Financial Security Program (FSP) is dedicated to solving the most critical financial challenges facing America’s households, and to shaping policies and financial products that enable all Americans to save, invest, and own. For more information on Aspen FSP, please visit

The Future of Work Initiative is a year-long nonpartisan effort to identify concrete ways to strengthen the social contract in the midst of sweeping changes in the 21st-century workplace and workforce. The Initiative will focus on two challenges in particular: first, how best to advance and protect the economic interests of Americans in the rapidly growing economy of shared goods and services; and second, how best to inspire a 21st-century capitalism for a 21st-century workforce by incenting employers to help workers get ahead.

The Aspen Institute is an educational and policy studies organization based in Washington, DC. Its mission is to foster leadership based on enduring values and to provide a nonpartisan venue for dealing with critical issues. The Institute is based in Washington, DC; Aspen, Colorado; and on the Wye River on Maryland's Eastern Shore. It also has offices in New York City and an international network of partners.
