From Precarity to Possibility
On November 3rd, the Center for Work and Democracy will host Zoë West for a talk on her research. Zoë West is a Senior Researcher at the Worker Institute at Cornell University’s ILR School. Her research and education work has centered on the low-wage economy, seeking to uplift creative strategies for building worker power and advancing racial, gender, and migration justice. Her talk, entitled "From Precarity to Possibility: Cultivating Worker Agency and Solidarity through Participatory and Peer Training," draws on research with domestic workers and food processing workers in New York City, nail salon workers in New York State, and janitorial workers in California to trace the complex terrain that stretches between experiences of precarity and marginalization and workers’ willingness to speak out and take action.

The hybrid event runs from 10:30am-12:00pm on November 3rd, live in 135 West Hall (Tempe Campus) and online via Zoom.

You can register here to attend virtually or in-person.
