Building meaningful dialogue about important social issues is a natural extension of Lyft’s mission to reconnect communities through better transportation.
Lyft is excited to announce a partnership with the New Leaders Council Progressive Action Initiative (NLC4) on its Building America’s Innovation Economy Project. Through this collaboration, Lyft will work with the New Leaders Council to produce policy research and engage with NLC’s local chapters to pursue a better understanding of the socioeconomic and environmental impacts of ridesharing, and the new innovative economy.
“As someone who is dedicated to fostering new ideas, I am excited that Lyft, a major influence in today's new landscape, is teaming up with the NLC community to craft new ideas for the innovation economy,” said NLC4 Chairman Chris Kelly. “Lyft's leadership is already shown in their projects driving rideshare access in underserved communities and having a nearly 50% female executive team, I am very excited to see what this partnership will come up with next.”
"Lyft is thrilled to be partnering with NLC4 to work with community leaders on smart policies to promote the innovative economy,” said Lyft VP of Government Relations Joseph Okpaku. “As a company that provides safe and inclusive transportation options, as well as economic opportunities for communities across the country, Lyft shares NLC4's goals of using technology to benefit society."
We’re proud to call NLC4 an official partner and look forward to the progress we can make together.
