Over the past 3 years, work/life concerns have increasingly taken center stage in national conversations regarding all aspects of society, from sustainability to DEIB (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Belonging) to mental health, hybrid work, and what it means to take a whole-person approach in the workplace. Now more than ever, our expertise is seen as crucial to the employee experience, to personal thriving, and to sustainable and equitable culture change.

As we consider our work going forward, how can we leverage our positions to foster meaningful change at our institutions and throughout higher education? How can we advocate for a more inclusive and holistic notion of care, community, and connection? And how can we partner with fellow CUWFA members, researchers, and policy makers to address the systemic factors nationwide that have such a profound impact on each of our communities locally?

Join us at American University’s Airlie retreat in Warrenton, Virginia for the CUWFA 2023 Conference – From Culture Carriers to Changemakers: Leveraging the Work/Life Lens.

The keynote speaker will be DR. Richard Safeer, who serves as the Chief Medical Director of Employee Health and Well-Being for Johns Hopkins Medicine where he leads the Healthy at Hopkins employee health and well-being strategy. He is a regular conference speaker on the topic of building a culture of health and well-being and has published numerous journal articles on the topic. He teaches in the Department of Health, Behavior and Society at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. He also taught the inaugural graduate course, ‘Organizational Health,’ at American University.

The conference program will be available soon on CUWFA’s webpage. Visit now and in the months ahead for updates!
