Event description

Description

Cumberland Lodge, the charity that empowers people, through dialogue and debate, to tackle the causes and effects of social division, is preparing to launch its 2019 report on Working Identities. This marks the culmination of a 12-month Cumberland Lodge project.

This Cumberland Lodge Report explores how identities based on work are transforming in an age characterised by precariousness, digitalisation, frequent job changes and meaningless labour. It draws on the wisdom and experience of an interdisciplinary representation of academics, policymakers, business leaders, NGOs, community practitioners and activists, and young people, from across the UK.

The aim of this evening is to share the report widely amongst policymakers, academics, practitioners, the media and the public to help promote positive action.

The author of our report is Cumberland Lodge freelance research associate Dr Eva Selenko, Senior Lecturer in Work Psychology at Loughborough University.

We will be welcoming an expert panel of speakers who will share their thoughts on the report and take part in a Q&A session. This will be followed by a drinks and canapé reception for all guests. The event will begin at 6:30 pm and end by 8:30 pm at the latest. The dress code is smart.

Our panellists are:

  • Frances O’Grady - General Secretary, Trades Union Congress

  • Jacqueline O’Reilly - Professor of Comparative Human Resource Management, University of Sussex

  • Mark Littlewood - Director General, Institute of Economic Affairs

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Emily Gow, Programme Officer, on egow@cumberlandlodge.ac.uk.
