Work Redux brings together hundreds of women spanning diverse backgrounds to reimagine the future of the workplace. For the second Word Redux of 2017, we will hear from women leaders who have experienced the hidden and visible effects when careers and caregiving collide.
More Information

On top of managing careers, running businesses, and leading organizations, women are caring for their families, children, and communities. It’s work that often goes unnoticed and is underappreciated. It risks their own advancement and well-being.

At Work Redux | CARE, we will hear from women leaders who have experienced the hidden and visible effects when careers and caregiving collide. Whether it’s in the form of caring for children, co-workers (who orders the birthday cakes, who clears the dishes?), aging or sick parents and family members, how—in all of these dynamics—do we preserve care for ourselves? Together, we will imagine a future of work where the burdens and joys of caregiving become visible and, even more importantly, valuable.

Speakers & Performers:

Jennifer Alstad, bswing
Venessa Fuentes, Writer & Poet
Meghan McInerny, Clockwork
Sahra Noor, People’s Center Health Services
Special performance from Mother King by Liz Gre & Sarah M. Greer

About Work Redux

As part of Pollen’s mission to invest in human connection, Work Redux is an event series (and now also a network of leaders) that inspires questions, sparks discussion, and drives action to challenge cultural assumptions behind the current, dominant work culture. Together we will better understand how we can design and change the future of work.

Ticket price includes breakfast, coffee, and juice. There is a surface lot and metered street parking nearby. Machine Shop is also accessible via public transit. Check for routes and schedules.

About Mother King

Mother King is a conceptual Black opera, which premiered at Public Functionary in Northeast Minneapolis this past July, that interpreted the story of Alberta Williams King, slain activist and mother of Martin Luther King, Jr. The libretto is based on a series of poems by Venessa Fuentes; award-winning composer Dameun Strange wrote the performance score.
