The 2021 Forum on Workplace Inclusion conference will be a five-day virtual experience. Augsburg faculty and staff are eligible to receive a 70% discount off the registration fee!
The pandemic CoVid-19 health crisis has disrupted and upended the way we work. People in all corners of the globe long for human connection but are charged with quickly navigating a digital, distance work environment. Social protests centering around racism and the unjust deaths of African Americans at the hands of the police have pulled the cover off overwhelming disparities in healthcare, economics, education, police brutality and more. Interpersonal tensions are roused, and there is a vocal demand for systems change to promote a more equitable society across the US and the world. What will it take to start a workplace revolution that moves us from talk to action?
