Care Guild Class of 2023: Reimagining and Rehumanizing our Care System

Share this Article

Care affects absolutely everybody. As such, the solutions that support us to care for our loved ones have to be as large as the demand. That means corporations building new care products and services, health plans prioritizing caregivers’ needs, governments offering new benefits, and movements reaching far beyond the choir to change hearts and minds.

The Care Guild, the first of its kind list of people reimagining and rehumanizing our care system.  This list weaves together and celebrates the dynamic people advancing the broader care system (which we all too often think of in silos). Their hope is that the list makes these folks feel honored, but also that it helps people see and be seen by new collaborators and supporters, and that it ushers in a new era of creativity and recognition for care across the country.  Criteria for those being honored by the Care Guild include:

  • Re-imagining the field
  • Anti-racist and anti-sexist
  • Human-centered
  • Silo-busting
  • Expectation-raising
  • Unapologetically joyful
  • Imaginative
  • Solving real problems for real people

Rachel Schumacher, Director of the Raising Child Care Fund, is among 25 leaders honored in the latest edition of The Care Guild. Honorees are ushering in new paradigms via state policy, delivered products that changed the way so many of us care for our loved ones, and raised expectations for whole industries with groundbreaking, care-centered approaches. Meet the Care Guild class of 2023.



The Care Guild also launched a collection of the five big ideas to watch for care solutions at scale that make us hopeful about the future.  Read more about these Big Ideas.
