Join Quakers and Business as we discover ways of improving the workplace for workers, owners, managers, volunteers and leaders at this practical, Quaker-led event. There will be expert speakers, workshops and opportunities to network with other attendees. 

What are we addressing?
In the wake of the pandemic we have the cost of living crisis, war in Ukraine and the deepening climate emergency. How can we face these challenges with faith and hope for the future of our workplace? We face a plethora of practical, moral and ethical dilemmas. Are resilience, adaptability, and the ability to pivot in a new direction the ways to a new future?

  • If we can survive and cope - can we profit from the new workplace? 
  • Is a new ethical approach the route to sustainable prosperity?
  • How do we respond to these challenges?

Join Quakers and Business for our next online conference.
