Sabina Dewan,
President and Executive Director,
JustJobs Network

Message from the President
and Executive Director

When the JustJobs story began ten years ago, countries around the world were bleeding jobs in the aftermath of the Great Recession. Today, the problems of jobless growth, stagnant wages and rising inequality remain endemic, and thought leaders across the ideological spectrum realize the need for a paradigm shift in economic policymaking.

JustJobs Network works with policymakers, business leaders, and civil society to help define a new kind of economic growth – one that puts people first, recognizes the value of work, and fosters the creation of just and equitable societies.

We work to find solutions to some of the most pressing questions of our time: How do we create more and better employment? How do we ensure access to “just jobs” – complete with appropriate remuneration, social protections, rights at work and opportunities for economic mobility?
