Practitioner Talks: A Conversation with Neena Potenza of Ingka Group (IKEA Retail) on Economic Mobility for Frontline Workers
WorkRise aims to elevate the voices of the workers, advocates, employers, policymakers, and practitioners leading transformative change in the labor market. Practitioner Talks is a new quarterly speaker series where we highlight the experiences and expertise of changemakers seeking and shaping economic opportunity and mobility at work.

Join WorkRise and the Aspen Institute Business and Society Program for our next Practitioner Talk featuring Neena Potenza, people and culture strategic initiatives manager at Ingka Group, the largest IKEA retailer operating more than 390 stores with 174,000 employees in 32 countries. Potenza will share insights on how IKEA is approaching job quality and worker voice for retail workers and, more generally, how large employers can build pathways for economic mobility for workers who have been excluded from opportunity through structural disadvantage. She will also reflect on ways workers can influence company practices and how current trends in the labor market are shaping IKEA’s talent and workforce strategies. Potenza will be in conversation with Todd Greene, the executive director of WorkRise and an Urban Institute fellow.
