The University of Minnesota's Center for Integrative Leadership, Global Initiative for Food Systems Leadership, and Upper Midwest Agriculture Safety and Health Center invite you to participate in the sixth of a series of “Finding Common Ground” forums designed to foster conversation among participants with diverse perspectives to discover and advance a common good.
Participants from academia, media, industry, intergovernmental, nongovernmental and governmental organizations will examine this issue in a neutral forum that considers multiple perspectives.
About the forum
The increasing global demand for food has implications for immigration policy, regulatory oversight, and production methods. Often overlooked is the health and well-being of agriculture workers including safety, access to health care, and successful integration into local communities. A comprehensive understanding of what it takes to assure the safety, health and welfare of the worker, reliable and productive employees, and vibrant rural communities will benefit all stakeholders.
