Challenging work situations are universal. Access to resources to navigate them are not. Empower Work launched earlier this year to ensure that every person, regardless of resources, has the tools to navigate complex work situations. Our goal is to help people navigate tricky work questions or tough work problems and come to an outcome they feel comfortable with as well as equip volunteers and texters with long-term resources.
