Working as Equals | A workshop on relational egalitarianism and the workplace

Date & Time:
Wednesday, June 2, 2021 - 8 a.m. to Saturday, June 5, 2021 - 12 p.m.

If we’re equals, then how come you’re my boss?
Can workplace hierarchy be justified, and how can this justification be squared with the ideal of relating to each other as equals?

The questions behind a growing wave of ethical criticism directed at hierarchical workplace structures and deploys various ideals of relational (or social) equality.

The Working as Equals workshop seeks to illuminate the moral dimensions of today’s workplace relations. It also aims to bring into focus the promise and limitations of the relational turn in ethical theory, using the workplace as a lens.
