Senator Nancy Todd (D-Aurora) has been selected to co-chair the Council of State Governments’ Future of Work Task Force.

“The CSG Future of Work Task Force will bring together a diverse group of state officials to explore how states can best navigate the challenges and opportunities of the new economy,” CSG Executive Director David Adkins said. “The task force will examine how technology creates new jobs and eliminates existing jobs, and it will share success stories and best practices to provide guidance on how states can best embrace the innovative and ever-evolving opportunities in the new economy.”

Senator Todd will join Senator Carolyn McGinn (R-Kansas) as co-chair. The work of the Future of Work Task Force will take place across a two-year timeline with key findings and recommendations studied and shared during task force meetings, some of which will be held at the CSG National Conferences.

“Exploring the future of work is essential as we create a direction for the future of legislative decisions,” said Senator Todd.

The task force includes four subcommittees: The Workforce of Tomorrow Subcommittee; Smart Government; What’s Next? Embracing the Future; and Equity and Inclusion. Each subcommittee has two co-chairs and 10 members.

“CSG is proud of its role as a trusted convener of state officials and is committed to a data driven, consensus-based process in all of its public policy work,” said Kelley Arnold, CSG Chief Communications Officer.
