We congratulate our founder and CEO, Dr. Carmen Rojas, on her new role as incoming CEO and president of the Marguerite Casey Foundation.
From Marguerite Casey Foundation's press release:
Dr. Rojas will join the Foundation from The Workers Lab, which she founded in 2014. Under her leadership, The Workers Lab has become the nation’s leading supporter of new ideas about increasing worker power in the United States. Dr. Rojas will leave the organization after growing the budget 500 percent and building a team that is majority queer first-generation people of color.
“Marguerite Casey has a long history of supporting low-income families in lifting their voices and helping entire communities realize their visions for a more just society,” said Dr. Rojas. “This opportunity is truly a gift and I look forward to working with our board, staff, and grantees to further strengthen this important tradition for low-income families and the organizations who serve them.”
When Carmen founded The Workers Lab it was with the belief that we needed to support the field of leaders building worker power to right the wrongs of the 20th century while addressing the challenges of the 21st century economy.
Carmen leaves our organization in a strong place with a committed board of directors, healthy funding and clear strategic direction. If you believe in Carmen's vision and want to support innovative ways to build worker power, please consider making a donation. Help us honor our founder and continue her important work.
Make a donation to The Workers Lab in honor of Carmen's commitment to innovating on experiments that build worker power.
