About the Workshops
Building upon the Trade Union Program’s commitment to education and guidance for the labor movement, we have designed a multi-class online workshop that combines the highlights and strengths of our core curriculum with a focus on current urgent challenges: overcoming the raging pandemic, navigating the economic recession, and achieving pathways to racial justice.
The workshop consists of twelve class sessions led by experts in their fields. The workshop will not be a passive webinar where participants only listen to the experts, but instead this will be an interactive learning experience with small group breakouts, case studies, and readings. The best way to learn is to be actively involved in developing ideas and solutions. We will cover many big issues that have been under fierce societal debate, but hopefully, through this process, we will have a better understanding of the issues and the directions to move forward.
For HTUP alumni, this will be a good refresher course to reinvigorate your soul by learning from and interacting with other union leaders and experts from around the world. Ideally, it will bring back that spark and ways of thinking you experienced in the HTUP.
The workshops are designed for current and former labor leaders, but we welcome anyone dealing with and interested in these issues.
