Employee Council, Committee on Class and Labor to Hold Focus Groups

The Employee Council, along with the Committee on Class and Labor, invites your participation in small focus groups to share your perceptions about work and status at Emory.

Questions will focus on each aspect of the charge of the committee, which is examining the following specific topics:

  • the effect of class and status on working relationships at Emory;
  • the role of Emory as an employer in the nonacademic labor market;
  • impediments or pathways to advancement, promotion, and engagement of nonacademic employees;
  • ethical principles that should guide Emory as an employer and current and preferred practices in meeting those principles.

Each focus group of six to eight employee members will be facilitated jointly by a member of the Employee Council and a member of the Committee on Class and Labor. All responses will be held in strict confidence and recorded in writing with complete anonymity.

Focus groups will meet in the School of Medicine Room 190P (on the Clifton Road side of building). Focus Groups Dates and Times are as Follows:

December 15th from 4 to 5 p.m.
