The purpose of this session is to explore the ways in which investors are supporting businesses and entities to contribute to a more equitable society by creating quality jobs. Employees are a critical stakeholder long ignored. Quality jobs form the backbone of efforts to alleviate inequality and racial injustice, improve economic opportunities and outcomes, and increase business resilience and employee retention. Our panel consists of investors and subject matter experts who will share their expertise on how to define quality jobs, how to measure and evaluate them, as well as practical advice on incorporating a job quality focus into an organization’s ESG and impact strategy.

Purpose and Desired Outcome
The goal of this session is to help investors and business leaders understand why quality jobs form a pillar for good business, as well as to educate them on how quality jobs can transform the lives of workers and their families for better. Businesses and their investors have a role to play in helping to solve some of society’s greatest challenges. They can do so by investing in good jobs and the companies that provide them. By taking action, these organizations will not only set themselves apart in an increasingly competitive market, they’ll be shaping a future in which workers and employers alike are empowered, resilient and successful. Among the questions we answer are: - What is a quality job? - How can employees be a part of defining what is needed for a quality job? - What steps can investors and companies take together to improve job quality? - How can employers measure and track their progress towards achieving quality jobs?
