Arianna Huffington: We cannot overestimate the devastating human consequences of our unemployment crisis. But there is a danger that by focusing exclusively on what is not working, we are missing out on spotlighting what is working. That's the belief behind the new jobs section we're launching today, Opportunity: What Is Working. In partnership with LinkedIn, Starbucks, Microsoft, The Amelior Foundation, The Ford Foundation, The Skoll Foundation, The Rockefeller Foundation, Startup America, Purpose.com, Valencia College, and NBC News, we are planning to use the national party conventions as powerful platforms for presenting what should be a fundamentally bipartisan issue: what we the people can do to accelerate job creation and fill job openings. As Ray Chambers put it: we will commit to "encourage everyone in the private sector, from businesses to individuals, to try and use creative and new ideas to help someone else get connected to an economic opportunity."
