Upcoming Workshop in Geneva: Navigating the Ag Labor Maze
Do you hire, or are you considering hiring, migrant or foreign-born labor? Do you want to improve your skills in supervising employees who come from different cultures, especially workers from Mexico and Central America? If yes, this workshop is for you!
On April 12 from 11:30am-5:00pm, learn how to build better relations between farmers and workers and how to establish meaningful communication across cultures and language barriers. Mary Jo Dudley, Director of the Cornell Farmworker Program, will discuss how to create positive workplaces and reduce miscommunication and culturally-based misunderstandings. Other speakers will address access to health services, opportunities for English language learning, and tips for worker and employer emergency preparedness.
Location: Jordan Hall, NYS Agricultural Experiment Station, 630 W. North St., Geneva, NY, 14456
