NEW YORK ENCOUNTER 2011 - How to Build a Human Economy for the Long Term in a (Post-?) Crisis Environment 

A discussion on the fundamental questions about work, economy, and finance

With Clara GAYMARD, VP of Government Strategy and Sales at GE International,Carla HENDRA, Founding Chairman, Global Strategy & Innovation at Ogilvy & Mather Worldwide, and William MCGURN, Columnist for The Wall Street Journal

Presented by Crossroads Cultural Center and Communion and Liberation

The topic of the discussion is work and its current challenges. The recent economic crisis has increased unemployment and reduced job security. This situation prompts us to re-examine some fundamental questions: What motivates people to look for a job, or to improve their current jobs? How should workers face job instability? Is it possible to strike a good balance between teamwork and competition in the workplace? What makes a job exciting – or even interesting? What puts a person truly “at work”? Or, at a deeper level, what is the meaning of work?

New York Encounter is a four-day cultural festival organized by Crossroads Cultural Center and Communion and Liberation. The idea of a "cultural festival" starts from the perception that there is a need for a fresh start in education and a new vibe for cultural initiatives. It also starts from the desire to communicate in New York the remarkable vastness, openness, richness, and profundity of cultural life and a passion for what is human that springs from the education to the Catholic faith taking place in Communion and Liberation.

New York Encounter features conferences on topics that are widely discussed in the public arena, as well as artistic performances, and will take place in New York on January 14 - 17, 2011. All conferences are open to the public and free of charge.
