Regional Workshops

Advocating For Workplace Justice - Continues to Broaden PBF's Outreach!

In 2015, PBF’s Regional Workshop Committee, co-chaired by PBF Board members Rich Brean and Gwynne Wilcox, planned for 11 workshops across the country.  This was an ambitious number but no one could predict that the positive feedback would include additional requests.  All eleven workshops were to be scheduled from September through November.  In early November, a request from PBF Alumni in Florida to add one more workshop at the University of Florida Levin College of Law and a special event mixer in New York City was approved.

PBF’s Regional Workshops Program, entitledAdvocating For Workplace Justice, is held at law schools across the country and consists of a one-hour panel discussion followed by a one-hour networking reception.  Panelists include union lawyers, labor law firm attorneys, labor law professors, Peggy Browning Fellowship Alumni and attorneys from the U.S. Department of Labor and the NLRB.

The program met all its goals this year with the number of hosting law schools promoting PBF’s programs, opportunities to encourage law students to apply for a Peggy Browning Fellowship and the average number of students attending was 20.

You can view a gallery of photos from many of the scheduled workshops and NYC event in our Photo Gallery.
