Workplace Rituals, Longevity and Legacy
Key moments over the course of our lives and careers are often marked by ‘rituals’:   the traditions or milestones that exist to acknowledge our accomplishments and connect us with others. We graduate, land our first job, receive our first promotion, get our first apartment…and we may go on to form our own families, have our own children. Yet, while many of life’s beginnings such as these are acknowledged by rituals, at some point our rituals start to be tied to the accomplishments of others – we celebrate our friends’ or family’s “firsts”, we attend award ceremonies of our mentees. What about life’s middles or transition points? This is where real life and real legacies are created: the other jobs we choose, the jobs we lose, the path we take, and the rich life we live in between the milestones. How is the changing landscape of work and longevity creating a need for new rituals – and how are new technologies disrupting our sense of accomplishment and connections?


WHEN:  Thursday, June 14th
