The American Dream has evolved. Decades ago, in the booming post-war economy from 1945-1970, the country was ripe with opportunities. People came to America from across the globe—often using a single skill to find work, earn money and build a house surrounded by a white picket fence. That was the American Dream.

Fast forward to present day, when the dream is less about a singular skill, a growing bank account and the white picket fence. It’s now more about having an education, a diverse skill set and a never-quit attitude in order to find fulfilling and meaningful work—work that makes a tangible difference in the world and allows for a work-life balance.

So, what is meaningful work? What makes workers feel fulfilled? And how does all of this contribute to your American Dream?
