Second presentation added @ AASHE 2018

My talk “A Primer on Living Wage Policies and Just Employment” was upgraded from a poster session to a presentation and added to the 2018 AASHE Conference & Expo in Pittsburgh. The presentation is Wednesday October 3 at 8:30 am in Convention Center 317. This is a 30-minute compact “on-ramp” for anyone who wants to learn about living wage policies and just employment.

And if you want to learn more, later that morning, I’ll be presenting “This Justice In: Updated Results From the Living Wage Policy Study” at 11:30 (also in Convention Center 317). I’ve revised my earlier post about AASHE (from July) to reflect the new information.

If you’re attending AASHE, or would like to connect in Pittsburgh, please drop me a note (weidner@sju.edu)!

2018 AASHE presentations (updated 9/19)

Updated (Sep 18 2018): AASHE asked if I’d be willing to convert my poster session (announced below in July) to a presentation – and of course I’m delighted to do so. This post has been the edited to reflect the current information on both presentations.

More good news. I’ve had two proposals accepted for presentation at the 2018 AASHE Conference & Expo in Pittsburgh (October 2-4). 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.”

Both presentations are on Wednesday, October 3:

A Primer on Living Wage Policies and Just Employment(8:30-9:00 am, Convention Center 317).

This presentation is a compact introduction to living wage and just employment issues.

This Justice In: Updated Results From the Living Wage Policy Study(11:30-12:30, Convention Center 317) 

This presentation begins at a more intermediate level and provides me 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.
