The UC Alumni Career Network investigates the “Great Resignation”

The “Great Resignation” can mean a lot of things — from an exodus of exhausted employees from the workforce to a widespread ideological movement of adults away from jobs they find meaningless, problematic or inflexible, and into something else… which is yet unclear. This phenomenon is impacting every sector and level of talent as workers’ rights are being placed front and center.

On Tuesday, April 12, the UC Alumni Career Network will feature Enrique Lopezlira, Ph.D., director of the Low-Wage Work Program at the UC Berkeley Labor Center. He will share insights on:

  • Drivers of the “Great Resignation”
  • Skills needed to organize in response to inequitable practices
  • Legal & political instruments to be informed about in relation to our role in the workplace
  • Remarkable companies that have pursued worker-centered practices

Dr. Lopezlira has been featured on CNN, Mother Jones, NPR and the Washington Post.
