Work-(community)life balance

October 6, 2010

Polls say Americans want it all:  rewarding, well-paying jobs, healthy, stable and secure lives, modest material comforts, and adequate time for friends, family and community. But for many, the reality is quite different. At the upcoming symposium “Balanced Lives: Best Policies for the New Economy” Oct. 20-22 at the University of Iowa, experts from government, academia, business, and the community will explore ways to make life more rewarding in a sustainable way as we move forward in a changing economy.

At the Friday morning plenary session, Center for Democracy and Citizenship co-director Harry Boyte will give a presentation he’s calling Sobering Up: The New Citizen Politics and the Transformation of American Democracy.
