Roundtable Discussion in NYC

Next Wednesday in NYC there is going to be a roundtable discussion of the role that grocers and retailers are going to be playing in the economic recovery.

Since these sectors are predicted to have substantial growth in the coming years, it's important for people in New York City to be addressing what these types of jobs mean in their city, as well as what kind of responsibilities employers have.

The roundtable is going to take place at the New York Blood Center at 310 E 67th St. starting at 6 PM and feature Mimi Rosenberg, Co-host of Building Bridges, Paul Sonn, Co-Legal Director of NELP, Nicholas Freudenberg, Professor of Urban Public Health at Hunter College, Charlie Fafaglia, Vice President of Human Resources at Fairway Market LLC, Rene Flores, Vice President of Human Resources and Asset Management, and Rob Newell, Field Director at UFCW Local 1500.

There is a Facebook event set up for this, so check that out, as well as the invite (PDF).
