More good news. I’ll be presenting “This Justice In: Updated Results From the Living Wage Policy Study” at the 2018 AASHE Conference & Expo in Pittsburgh October 2-4 (the presentation is Wednesday, October 3 at 11:30 am in Convention Center 317). I’m delighted because AASHE (Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education, aashe.org) is a rapidly growing organization centered on higher education, and brings together everyone from students to staff to academics, all acting on their commitments to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) that inspired the theme to this year’s conference, “Global Goals: Rising to the Challenge.”
Additionally, AASHE informed me that my presentation proposal “A Primer on Living Wage Policies and Just Employment” has been accepted for presentation in a poster session at the same conference (Expo/poster session area 2:30-4:30 pm, also on Wednesday October 3). I’m excited because the poster session will serve as an introductory to these issues, and that means that I can begin at a more intermediate level – and provide more time to work with participants – during my session presentation.
My engagement with AASHE began in October 2016 with my first AASHE conference presentation (with Elizabeth Sohmer in Baltimore), and put me on the path toward this project.
If you’re attending AASHE, or would like to connect in Pittsburgh, please drop me a note!
