Mind to Mind: Researchers and reporters on America’s workforce

Reveal from The Center for Investigative Reporting will bring together some of the best minds in journalism and labor (including me) at a symposium, Mind to Mind 2018: Researchers and reporters on America’s Workforce on Fri, October 12, 2018 at American University.

At this symposium, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalists, acclaimed researchers and academics from top universities will come together to discuss a wide variety of topics affecting America’s workforce. Conversations will range from what’s happening with worker safety to  #MeToo at the workplace to worker injuries at Tesla and the Los Alamos National Laboratory. The symposium will also cover gender discrimination in the form of planning holiday parties at work to abuses at drug rehabilitation programs across the country.

I will also be participating, talking about Workplace safety in the era of Trump and former OSHA Policy Director Deborah Berkowitz will also appear on a panel on Modern-day slavery: Unpaid work and abuse in rehab programs
