Addressing the Benefits Gap in the Gig Economy

In this panel from our Disruptive Discourse event, our community of experts discuss how organizations can better manage the future of inclusive benefits for short-term and contract workers.

We empower employees of color to build wealth.

The financial systems in America were not designed to support people of color, and navigation takes knowledge. OfColor delivers actionable, personalized strategies using technology, content, coaching, and community focused on growth.

In the press

"If we’re not helping all employees of color earn more, invest more and develop genuine autonomy, we’re not uplifting disenfranchised communities. The financial health of marginalized workers is critical to achieving equity and creating a productive and engaged workforce."
