WORKED Discussion Nights

WORKED Discussion Nights are a space for workers* to learn, share and act. Come share struggles and successes, learn from peers and allies, and strategize ways to take action on our dreams of fair and democratic workplaces.
6:30-8:30pm
Back Stage Bar – 3702 SE Hawthorne Boulevard
Kimball Room on the 3rd Floor

Three different Discussion Nights include:

  • May 29 – Office Space: Surviving the Modern Workplace
  • June 12 – Serving the Community: Work in the Nonprofit and Public Sector
  • June 26 – Precarious Life: Internships, Temp Work, and Underemployment

Free food and drinks!

RSVP here to let us know that you can make it to any of the WORKED Discussion Nights.

*Work doesn’t always get a paycheck! Students, interns, and volunteer and unemployed workers are encouraged to join the conversation. To build a space for all workers, we ask that employers and supervisors with hiring/firing power not attend. Please be prepared to be respectful, supportive, maintain confidentiality and promote a safer space.
