Our panel of experts will discuss the employers’ role in prevention of workplace mental health problems and some ethical strategies for connecting workers to company and community mental health resources. Co-sponsored by the Center for Work, Health and Environment and the Center for Bioethics and Humanities.

Presentation by Joseph Gal, PhD, about French Jewish army captain Alfred Dreyfus, who was falsely accused of providing military secrets to Germany in 1894. He was convicted of high treason and sentenced to life in prison on Devil's Island off the South American coast. The conviction was overturned by the President of France and in 1906 a high court exonerated Dreyfus. The case is a grave warning about the consequences of racism and antisemitism, still present today. RSVP TODAY>>

They’ve been whispered about, shouted at, insulted, rejected, isolated. But here they are, strong and brave. Why do we make it so difficult for people to be who they really are? And how can we make it better, and safer for them to speak out and be heard?
