Jobs for the Future
Senior Innovation Officer
Stephen Yadzinski is the senior innovation officer for JFF. In this role, Steve works with JFF leaders and teams to identify new opportunities, establish new partnerships, and transform JFF programs and service lines to meet an evolving and dynamic education and workforce ecosystem, leveraging the fields of design, technology, and innovation to further our mission.

Passionate about the role technology can play in creating business aligned education and workforce social impact, Steve also serves as the Executive Director of the Education Quality Outcomes Standards (EQOS), which JFF acquired in March of 2022. The EQOS vision is to become the most useful and user-friendly source of trusted information on the quality of short-term education and training programs and credentials in the United States.

Previously, Steve served as Chief Technology Officer and founder of the Innovate+Educate Employment Tech Division in response to the critical need to improve workforce readiness for high-demand jobs in key U.S. industries. Under Steve’s leadership, the division grew to include organizational psychologists, data scientists, user interface developers, and others to create leading-edge mobile technologies, assessments, and labor-market insights connecting Americans living at or near poverty with education, training, and quality jobs.
Earlier in his career, Steve founded and led his own branding, communications, and technology consultancy. The organization grew to serve a national clientele with marquee projects that included Emirates Airline North American advertising and photo books presented to President Obama in support of National Monument designations across the Southwest.

A graduate of the Rochester Institute of Technology, Steve lives with his wife and two children in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and enjoys backpacking and skiing in the Sangre de Cristo Mountains near his home.
