Professor Mary Dean Lee is speaker at Montreal Matters public discussion on October 20


The McGill Alumni Association is happy to announce its involvement in Montreal Matters 2005, a CBC initiative that joins community organizations from across the city each October.

The theme of Montreal Matters this year is WORK and the MAA wants you to have a chance to talk about the way you work at one of our popular public conversations.

Professor Lee's topic, "New ways of working: What are the costs and benefits of flexibility in the workplace?" will explore the real effects of new workplace initiatives such as telework, flex-time and reduced workload. Do these innovations really serve the best interests of employees? What benefits are there to employers? What are the consequences of implementing, or not implementing, such initiatives?

Date and Time: Thursday, October 20, 7-9 pm

Location: McGill International Executive Institute, Faculty of Management, McGill University, 1001 Sherbrooke Street West, 6th floor

RSVP: This event is free of charge but space is limited. Please RSVP to Sophia Johnson at 514-398-7684 or sophia.johnson [at] (by email).
