ShopTalk
Let’s Talk About Work.

ShopTalk includes more than 40 presentations by over 25 different people. Talks like Work-Life Balance: Is it an Option for Mothers? by Jessie Garcia, Being a Female Hmong Professional by Maysee Yang Herr, and What Folksongs Tell us about Work in Wisconsin by Jim Leary.

ShopTalk presenters tell personal stories about both unique and universal experiences with work. Some of the talks place work in Wisconsin into historical context. Others consider current and pressing issues and ask us to think hard. All ShopTalk presentations open conversations and give us the opportunity to consider the ways we think about work.

ShopTalk is part of the Working Lives Project: Making a Living and Making a Life in Wisconsin. The program is free to host. Click here to start browsing and apply to host a ShopTalk event in your community.
