Guiding the Next Workforce

California Future Health Workforce Commission – Co-chaired by Lloyd Dean and comprised of a multidisciplinary group of leaders from across the state, the California Future Health Workforce Commission “is committed to ensuring California’s health workforce will have the capacity, competencies, agency and diversity to meet Californians’ evolving health needs” by 2030. In 2019 the commission released a set of bold recommendations for eliminating the state’s primary care provider shortage.

Future of Work Commission – Established in 2019 by executive order from California Governor Gavin Newsom, the Future of Work Commission aims to “develop a new social compact for California workers, based on an expansive vision for economic equity that takes work and jobs as the starting point.” The commission’s work will focus on several areas, including: the types of jobs that will be needed in the future, the impact of technology on employers and employees, promoting better job quality and wages, preserving jobs, and workforce readiness.
