2. "Humanities@Work" Anthony Poore, Executive Director for New Hampshire Humanities, and Dr. Tricia Peone, who manages the “Humanities to Go” program, will share an exciting, new, workplace-focused program, “Humanities@Work.”
This new initiative recognizes that we are working more than ever, and the pace of our lives has increased in ways we never would have imagined even a decade ago. To meet the demands of the modern working world, New Hampshire Humanities has developed “Humanities@Work” to connect new audiences with opportunities to explore the humanities.
Dr. Peone and Mr. Poore will present details about the program and provide ways in which businesses can incorporate "Humanities@Work" into their everyday work environment.
3. Childcare Workforce Solutions Mollie White, executive Director for the Coos Coalition for Young Children and Families, will present on how employers and employees are coping with the cost and availability of childcare. Although the focus is on North Country strategies, the issue has become a significant workforce availability issue in all parts of the state.
