CUWFA on the Cutting Edge: an innovations showcase!

June 20, 2023 2023
Annual CUWFA Conference
Airlie, American University
Warrenton, Virginia

CUWFA invites work-life practitioners and researchers to showcase a current initiative, program, or research project on issues related to CUWFA’s mission at the 2023 CUWFA meeting at American University’s Airlie retreat in Warrenton, VA.

This showcase, scheduled for Tuesday, June 20th, is designed to promote awareness about new research, best practices and innovation in the field of work-life on the college campus and to encourage dialogue, connections and engagement amongst peers with like minded interests and goals.

Presenters should be prepared to present short summaries of their signature work within a timed “speed education” format. They must be able to present and engage in Q and A as conference attendees move about the room. Groups will spend no more than 10 minutes with each presenter.

All presenters should include a digitally accessible visual demonstration of the project, research or initiative that is being shared and may utilize a variety of visual examples. These examples may include table top posters, brochures, a website, guides, video or podcast clip, or other creative media, to encourage dialogue during the Q and A periods.
