Making Workplaces Family-Friendly
Presentation by Corina Norrbom MD, Health Policy Fellow, Wisconsin Institute for Public Policy and Service Learning. She will present about a few family friendly worksite policies that have a demonstrated return-on-investment and also about the Family Friendly Workplace Survey that is being launched in our community. The survey will help us understand what Central WI employees value from their employer that supports them as a parent in the workplace.
Additionally, you will hear about a program to enhance the well-being of parents and their young children in the workplace. LENA Start Marathon Co, is a 10-week parent education program that utilizes “talk pedometer” technology to enhance parent learning about improving quantity and quality of communication with their children. There is a workplace model that was very well-received by employees.
Collision of the U.S. and Hmong: demands for change and belonging
Presenter: MaiGer Moua, adjunct faculty for the History Department at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point and Crisis Operations Manager at North Central Health Care
The presentation will focus on the resettlement of Hmong refugees and current issues affecting Hmong Americans in Marathon County. Beginning in the 1960’s, there were parallel fights for self-determination and inclusion during the civil rights movement in the U.S. and the secret war in Laos. The secret war and Vietnam War resulted in mass displacement of Southeast Asians and resettlement of refugees to the U.S., including Marathon County. By situating refugee resettlement within historical context, we will be able to understand the ways in which the Hmong have been at the center of community debates about inclusion and belonging.
