The Changing Nature of Work in the ‘Alberta-Bubble’ with Dr. Linda Duxbury
Albertans are living in a resource rich-bubble that means we are some of the wealthiest people on the planet. Yet workers across all sectors including teaching are not immune to the radical shifts we are witnessing across North America. The often unfulfilled promise that technology would lessen workload, combined with the demands of family and growing personal aspirations, is challenging our assumptions about organizational well-being. Drawing on recent research on the work-lives of Alberta teachers and other professions and sectors, Linda Duxbury will help to contextualize the changes we are witnessing in the broader workplace and outline some promising ideas for enhancing organizational health.
Wine & Cheese Reception 6-7pm, Public Lecture 7-9pm
Dr. Linda Duxbury is one of Canada's most accomplished researchers and speakers on work-life balance. She has influenced policy and attitudes internationally to help create supportive work environments.
