Caregiving: Honor and Burden, Contributions, and Impact
Tues, Nov 9, 4-5:30pm, (Online)

Sidore Lecture Series

As with previous generations, Baby Boomers will depend on their friends and family to help them stay in their homes and communities as they age. Yet demographic shifts mean challenges for the future of caregiving, highlighting the question of who will provide this care. Panelists will provide an overview of the face of today’s caregivers and the costs of caregiving, to businesses, individuals and families, as well as society as a whole. They will provide perspective on how the shortage of home care workers impacts older people’s ability to remain at home as they age. This local perspective on home care and the pressure on a system which is already strained and bracing for increased needs will have all considering, “Who will be there when I need care?”

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Professional Development

Professional development opportunity for UNH faculty, staff, and graduate students to further diversity, equity and inclusion awareness, knowledge and skill sets allowing for critical analysis of the services UNH provides, and of the relational dynamics we seek in a diverse institution. In small group interactive sessions, we explore issues of social justice, equity and inclusion via personal and institutional lenses to analyze: power and privilege, discrimination and prejudice, inclusion and equity through the multiple social identities of race, gender, sexual orientation, class, nationality, ethnicity, ability (physical and mental), religion, etc.
