Micro-activism at Work: How to be Active Citizens in a “Conservative” Workplace Photo

​Event in partnership with Harvard University Asia Center​ and Harvard-Yenching Institute.

Young people around the world are more politically active than ever before. However, many will join workplaces that conflict with their values, from amoral conglomerates to authoritarian home governments. How can young professionals avoid complicity, while preserving their ambition to be change-makers?

Kanokrat Lertchoosakul is a scholar of Thailand's youth-led democracy movement, and a visiting fellow at the Harvard-Yenching Institute. In this lecture, she will showcase initiatives by youngsters who maintained their drive for change within “conservative" organisations and governments.

This workshop will prepare participants to enter their future workplace as active citizens. We will exchange ideas and debate possibilities in pushing for reform - short-term or generational – in organizations that resist change.
