NIFI & Kettering Launch “Changing World of Work” Series

We recently highlighted the “Changing World of Work” event that the Kettering Foundation and National Issues Forums Institute – two leading NCDD organizational members – hosted last month, and we are excited to share an update from them on their launch of a year-long series based on that work. Read their announcement below or learn more by clicking here.

NIF logoAs you may be aware, the Kettering Foundation, the National Issues Forums Institute, and Augsburg College have partnered to plan and launch a year-long forums project titled “The Changing World of Work: What Should We Ask of Higher Education?”

The official launch of this project was held on January 21, 2015 at the National Press Club with speakers and panelists, and a video featuring closing comments by Kettering Foundation president, David Mathews. The event was recorded, and you can read more about the speakers and panelists, and watch the entire 3-hour proceedings at www.nifi.org/en/groups/stream-changing-world-work.

Coverage of the launch included an article in the Chronicle of Higher Education.

The “The Changing World of Work: What Should We Ask of Higher Education?” issue guide and companion materials are now available at www.nifi.org/en/issue-guide/changing-world-work.

Please consider planning to hold forums using this new issue guide material during the coming year, and to encourage your friends and colleagues to become involved in this national project. A national report will be created based on information from the forums, so when you have details about a planned forum, please log in (if you haven’t yet done so, you can quickly register for an NIF website account at www.nifi.org/en/user/register), and post the information about your forums or other related events at www.nifi.org/en/events so that they will appear on the NIF calendar.

As always, thank you for all that you do for the National Issues Forums network, and for public deliberation around the country. Your efforts are appreciated very much.
