Rutgers University - Center for Innovation in Worker Organization
- New Jersey
50 Labor Center Way
The Center for Innovation in Worker Organization (CIWO) at Rutgers University was founded in late 2014 to engage leaders, activists, and staff from labor unions, worker centers and community-based organizations to generate new ideas, strategies, tactics and programs to deal with the changing workplace, workforce and the results of rising economic inequality and insecurity. Through innovative research, capturing and disseminating lessons from ongoing experimentation, and organizing gatherings where key leaders are brought together across organizations and networks, CIWO seeks to serve as a launching pad for new strategies in community and labor organizing and to provide support to broader movements for racial and economic justice. Our leadership convenings, trainings, and research involve leaders regionally, nationally and globally.
