CANCELED - Live to Work or Work to Live?: Exploring What Makes a Job Good

Exploring What Makes a Job Good

May 27, 2020 | 6:30 p.m. | Cornelius Public Library

1355 N Barlow St., Cornelius OR 97113

Most adults spend most of their waking hours working. Yet, we rarely have the time to consider why certain work brings us satisfaction and other work does not. Do our jobs define our personal success? Are some jobs more valuable than others? How do jobs contribute to national success or failure? This conversation, led by historian Nikki Mandell, will engage participants in thinking about and discussing work more deeply. Participants will explore the quality and meanings of work in their own lives and those of people different from themselves and the connections between work as a personal endeavor and jobs as part of local and national economies. This conversation can be adapted to the needs and goals of the host organization and group of participants.

This event has been postponed and will be rescheduled.
