Moving Beyond Gratitude: Opportunities to Improve Essential Work
Among the many unexpected lessons of 2020 was a recognition of the importance of essential workers. We saw how much we rely on the people who work in our food systems, who care for our children and our loved ones, who deliver packages, and who keep our public spaces clean. We learned to say thank you to so many of them, and in this season of thanks, we will come together to reflect on how we can do more than say thank you by improving the quality of essential jobs. As the year draws to a close, join us for our virtual discussion on the important role of essential workers in our economy and society and a variety of approaches for improving essential work.

Our speakers include Angelina Drake (Chief Operating Officer at PHI, Aspen Institute Job Quality Fellow, and former home care worker); Terrill Haigler/Ya Fav Trash Man (Philadelphia Sanitation Worker); Linda Nguyen (Chief of Staff at the UFCW Local 770 and Aspen Institute Job Quality Fellow); Zeynep Ton (Professor, MIT Sloan School of Management); and moderator E.J. Dionne (Columnist at the Washington Post and EOP Advisory Council member).
