Michelle Miller

Director of Innovation

Michelle Miller is a Visiting Social Innovator with the Harvard Kennedy School’s Social Innovation and Change Initiative and joins the Center for Labor and a Just Economy at Harvard Law School as Director of Innovation. She joins us after a decade as the co-founder and co-director of Coworker, an organization that nurtures early stage worker-led organizing across multiple industries. Coworker’s support for workers at companies like Starbucks, Google, Uber, and REI, among many others, secured wins for wage increases, scheduling reform and hazard pay. During this time, Michelle also pioneered the labor movement’s research and response to the proliferation of software and technology tools being used to manage and surveil workers and working class people. In 2015, Michelle was honored to co-host the first ever White House Town Hall on Worker Voice with President Barack Obama. Michelle is on the boards of the Brooklyn Institute for Social Research and Arts and Democracy and lives in Brooklyn, NY.
