There are two conferences hosted by UBC in May that may be of interest to the HR community of practice:
2019 WACUBO Annual Conference: May 5-9
UBC and SFU are co-hosting the 2019 Western Association of College and University Business Officers (WACUBO) conference, May 5-9 in downtown Vancouver. Attendees will connect with colleagues from universities and colleges across the region, and learn about trends, best practices, solutions, and developments related to finance, human relations, organizational development, change management, and other fields connected to administration in higher education. This year’s theme is Beyond Boundaries, and focuses on innovative programming to expand individual and institutional capacity to successfully meet the diverse challenges facing higher education today.
Our workplaces are changing. Demographic shifts mean that there are multiple generations in the workplace. Legal and legislative change means that our understanding and conception of family is broadening. Dual career challenges have moved from a ‘two-body’ problem to a ‘whole family’ opportunity. As practitioners in the field of work, life, and family, explore ways to respond to and anticipate these changes. The Building the Future of Work-Life: Catalyzing Inclusion conference is May 22-24 at UBC. This conference is hosted by the UBC Equity & Inclusion Office and the College and University Work-Life-Family Association (CUWFA).
