MTU IPEC Invites Discussion on the Changing Workplace
The latest Institute for Policy, Ethics, and Culture (IPEC) series will lead community members to a deeper examination of work life, now and in the future.
The Work in Transition lecture series features three livestreamed virtual talks with Q&A sessions on three consecutive Tuesdays: March 14, 21 and 28. On Thursday, March 16, there’s a live event at the Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts. All events begin at 7 p.m. and are free and open to the public.
The series tackles the topic of work — from how to prepare for the workplace of tomorrow to quiet quitting. Speakers include professors with TED Talks and popular books, social media influencers, a lawyer and a poet-musician. Following each presentation, Michigan Tech faculty members will lead discussions, with audience participation moderated by Michael Stanitis, program coordinator at Portage Lake District Library.
IPEC Director Jennifer Slack (HU) said the lecture series is designed to help participants explore the transforming world of work from key perspectives: the history of work, the emergence of new forms of work, the challenges of the new workplace, and what work might look like in the context of building a better world.
