Anchorage Gig Economy Network
To advance opportunities for gig workers and expand Anchorage’s workforce prospects, allowing individuals to work, play, and live in our city.
- Creating a space for gig workers to connect and share lessons learned, challenges and solutions
- Allowing the chamber to be more educated with gig economy business needs
- Igniting advocacy on issues that improve the rights and benefits of the gig economy
The Anchorage Gig Economy Network (AGEN), formed by the Anchorage Chamber's Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Program, is for those that share a common interest in the future of the new gig economy and how it impacts the Anchorage business community.
This includes app-based workers, freelancers, independent contractors, consultants, the professional service sector, and the like, working and living in Anchorage. It is about more than just Uber and Lyft. It is a sounding board for anything relating to the Gig Economy. Airbnb, Rover, DoorDash, Etsy, Instacart, Freelancing community, etc.
Come share your wealth of information as a seasoned worker, learn pointers as a newbie, make new friends and even learn a new trick or two. Information is power! The chamber will also be here in the background to listen and to help improve rights and benefits of the industry.
