  3. Capitalism and Consumerism: The Work-Life Balance

    January 20, 2022 - 12:00 PM to 1:30 PM ET

    We’re all exhausted, and self-care has become a buzzword and another multi-billion dollar industry. What are the public policies that help reinforce our workaholic culture? That puts profits above people, families, and health? What social norms and beliefs do we have that help support this toxic mentality? How has this culture of workaholism shaped the health and well-being of our nation? And how do we compare to other countries, and what has the pandemic taught us? The focus of this discussion will be touching on various labor issues that affect our work-life “balance,” including the "Great Resignation," U.S. maternal leave policies, the movement to a 4-day work week, our tip-wage system, health issues in this country due to high stress and limited time off, and the recent rise in the movement for radical self-care.

    Join us to hear from activists and scholars studying the ways in which Americans are tethered to their job, and how it affects our quality of life. Join us to hear from activists and scholars studying the ways in which Americans are tethered to their job.

  6. Undoing Racism Workgroup

    January 27, 2022 - 12:00 PM to 2:00 PM ET

    Undoing Racism is a community collective of students, staff, and faculty in the School of Social Work dedicated to fighting white supremacy at the individual, school, and structural levels.

    This workgroup was established in 2019 after students, staff, and faculty took part in the People's Institute for Survival and Beyond Undoing Racism© workshops. Since then, the Undoing Racism workgroup has been working to implement the People’s Institute anti-racist community organizing model – recognizing that community organizing within our school is critical to move toward an anti-racist and anti-oppressive program to bring along all members of the community.

    The Undoing Racism workgroup also emphasizes the role that white members of our community must take on to dismantle and undo white supremacist structures that benefit and maintain power for white people. Our work has largely been focused on building collective community – a fundamental step in the People’s Institute organizing model. Our dialogue and strategic planning to advance towards an anti-racist and anti-oppressive program and school community must begin with building relationships and strengthening community bonds to engage in internal and external anti-racism work.

    Meetings are held monthly on the last Thursday of the month from 12-2pm. All members of our school community are invited to attend.
