About this Event

Setting The Table is a monthly gathering to learn, converse, and break bread around an important issue — presented by Bridgeliner, WeWork, and Business For a Better Portland

This month's big question: Why Don't We Value (Or Compensate) Invisible Labor?

After all, we’ve all done some invisible labor in our lives.

Whether it’s taking care of an elderly parent, taking notes at a company meeting, or taking the kids to soccer practice, invisible labor is the unglamorous toil that keeps the world turning.

So why don’t we value this work more as a society? And why do some people get stuck doing more of it than others, often without recognition and almost always without compensation?

Join us on Tuesday, October 8 to discuss how invisible labor plays out in our relationships, our workplaces, and our family lives — and what we can all do to share the load more equally.

We’ll kick things off with a panel discussion, then break out for dinner with friends and strangers (aka soon-to-be friends) who are interested in digging into this question together.

  • 6:00 p.m. - Doors open
  • 6:20 p.m. - Panel discussion (panelists TBA)
  • 7:20 p.m. - Dinner, wine & conversation

We want to thank our partner Business For a Better Portland for supporting this most recent installment of Setting the Table and the Bridgeliner community; WeWork for providing the space and meal for us all; and our readers and members for contributing reading/watching/listening material for this month’s Curiosity Club theme.
