Rachel Schneider is the founder and CEO of Canary, a company helping the 21st-century social net evolve to reflect the future of work. She’s led development of Grant Circle, a high-impact solution for challenges she uncovered as co-author of The Financial Diaries: How American Families Cope in a World of Uncertainty. Grant Circle exists so employees can access emergency support in times of financial need and enable them to recover quickly.
