About the forum
The increasing global demand for food has implications for immigration policy, regulatory oversight, and production methods. Often overlooked is the health and well-being of agriculture workers including safety, access to health care, and successful integration into local communities. A comprehensive understanding of what it takes to assure the safety, health and welfare of the worker, reliable and productive employees, and vibrant rural communities will benefit all stakeholders.

Ensuring healthy and productive workers requires a broad perspective, inquisitive minds, and a commitment to collaborate. Please join us on Thursday, January 16, 2014 at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum for a working forum on the challenges and opportunities that the changing agriculture workforce brings for workers, employers and the community.

As a forum participant, you will:
• Explore the complexities of the agriculture workforce
• Identify shared interests in worker health and productivity
• Strengthen appreciation and respect for different perspectives
• Contribute to innovative approaches for ensuring healthy and productive workers

For questions about the forum, please contact Diane Kampa at dkampa@umn.edu or 612-626-4826.
