I’m delighted to report that the Just Employment Policy Assessment (JEPA) has been published as part of my article in Journal of Education Human Resources, “Development and Application of the Just Employment Policy Assessment in American Higher Education Institutions.” I developed JEPA for use in my own research; the article explains the most recently updated version of the assessment and demonstrates its utility in various institutions (e.g., public/private, 2 year/4-year, enrollment, location, and region). The complete JEPA is included in the article and it can be used to evaluate either a comprehensive just employment policy or a collection of standalone institutional policies. JEPA is accessible to practitioners and researchers with citation/attribution (no financial cost). If you use it, I’d appreciate hearing about your use of JEPA and any feedback you can provide.
I’m presenting at the in-person 2021 Ignatian Family Teach-in for Justice hosted by the Ignatian Solidarity Network this weekend. The IFTJ theme is “Imagining a Path Forward: Reflection. Reckoning. Kinship.” #IFTJ 2021 is being held at the Washington Hilton. See the IFTJ conference website for more information.
I’m presenting my session twice on Sunday, November 7 at 10:40-11:30 am and 1:10-2:00 pm. Click the link below to go to the In-person conference schedule, then scroll down to 10:00 am or 1:00 pm (both sessions are in Columbia 3).
I’ll be sharing results from my research into what makes or breaks a successful just employment or living wage policy. I’ll also discuss how my own institution developed its own Just Employment Policy based on the Model Just Employment Policy published by the Kalmanovitz Initiative for Labor and the Working Poor at Georgetown University.
IFTJ isn’t just an event, it’s an energy- and inspiration-filled experience. I’ll be on site at the conference all weekend, and look forward to meeting colleagues across the Ignatian family – and beyond – in Washington Saturday and Sunday (note: the In-person IFTJ this weekend is a different program than the Virtual program held last month).
I’m presenting live at the Ignatian Solidarity Network’s 2021 Ignatian Family Teach-in for Justice, which this year is being held both virtually (in October) and in-person (in November). This year’s conference theme is “Imagining a Path Forward: Reflection. Reckoning. Kinship.”
My virtual breakout session is on Saturday October 16 (4:25-5:15 pm EDT):
