Leaders want to know how to evolve employment systems to prepare for the future of work.


The excitement for change is in the air, however, we cannot prepare for the future without being clear about our past. In order to dismantle broken systems, we need to explore how and why they were built this way.  Spend the evening with (insert how you would like to describe the organization) to explore how work was designed, who it was designed for, and why now is the time to usher in a more equitable and inclusive way of working.


This hands-on workshop presented by Katie Augsburger of Future Work Design, will leave you inspired, excited and prepared to take the courageous step towards breaking down old systems, and rebuilding a new, more healing and exciting future.
