Panel Discussion #2

January 21, 2015, 7:00 p.m. – 8:15 p.m.
McKenna Hall Auditorium

This event will serve as an opportunity for students, faculty, and staff to learn more about the concept of Worker Participation and engage in a discussion with our panelists on this topic. Our panelists bring a wide variety of experiences which help to form their own unique perspectives which in turn will encourage attendees to consider their own viewpoints. A reception with light refreshments will follow the panel discussion, allowing for audience members to engage panelists in one-on-one conversations.
