“Benchmarking Just Employment” at the In-person Ignatian Family Teach-in for Justice

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).

2021 CUPA-HR Presentation

I’m delighted to share the news that my research has been accepted for presentation at the 2021 Annual Conference of the College and University Professional Association for Human Resources (CUPA-HR), October 3-5 in National Harbor, MD (Washington, DC). It will be a pleasure to participate in an on-site conference after such a long time of virtual events, and I am grateful for the opportunity to present my work at CUPA-HR again. My presentation is titled “Assessing Fair Employment Initiatives: A Tool for Benchmarking Progress” (1:15 pm on October 4). The 2021 CUPA-HR Annual Conference website contains all of the information about the conference. I hope to see you there.
