EDI Table Talks: Poverty and Employment

EDI Table Talks are informal opportunities to discuss about topics on respect and inclusion in the workplace. This month, the University of Alberta United Way campaign is raising funds for over 100 programs and services centered around poverty. We often discuss ways in which people are not included in the workplace, but we don’t often discuss how poverty can be a barrier to full inclusion. Colleagues in Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, HRS invite you to an interactive dialogue and reflection on poverty and employment. Topics may include: Class, working poor, recruitment and retention, multi-generational effects, workplace dynamics, or topics that emerge during conversation. Light refreshments provided.

Date/Time: October 17, 12pm-1pm
