The Markle Foundation works to realize the potential of information technology to address some of the nation’s most challenging issues in national security, health care and the economy. Markle’s current initiative, Rework America, is focused on accelerating innovations that use the forces of technology and globalization to return opportunities to Americans in today’s rapidly changing digital economy.
