The Good Companies, Good Jobs Initiative digests are conversation starters. Each focuses on one topic at the forefront of concern as we shape our working future. These digests are intended to be a weave of ideas in play and a synthesis of research underway here at MIT and beyond. Through the abundant links embedded in each digest, you can delve more deeply into the topic.
