About Us

1 Million for Work Flexibility (1MFWF) is the first national initiative creating a collective voice in support of work flexibility. We are uniting professionals, moms, dads, millennials, retirees, freelancers, military spouses, entrepreneurs, caregivers, and more who want to do well in our jobs as well as by the people we love. Supporters of work flexibility come from all walks of life, and want work flexibility for many different reasons—work-life balance, better health, greater productivity, and more availability for our families, just to name a few.

Who We Are

1MFWF Coalition. 1 Million for Work Flexibility is led by a diverse coalition of companies, nonprofits, and business leaders who understand that work flexibility benefits us all. By partnering together and pooling our resources, we believe we can help to create a stronger voice for work flexibility—a voice that can shout from the rooftops why work flexibility benefits our lives, our businesses, and our communities.

Sara Sutton Fell, Founder. Sara is the founder and CEO of FlexJobs, which she started in 2007 as a result of her own need and desire for work flexibility, as well as the founder of Remote.co. She believes that a modern workplace should address the needs of today’s workforce, and that utilizing workplace technology to support telecommuting and flexible work will achieve societal, environmental, and economic benefits for both employees and employers. In support of those beliefs and her interest to spread awareness about work flexibility as an important topic, Sara launched 1 Million for Work Flexibility in 2013. For her work in the employment and technology fields, she was honored to be named a Young Global Leader (class of 2014) by the World Economic Forum. Sara is a graduate of the University of California at Berkeley, and lives in Boulder, Colorado, with her two children.
