Join students in INS 5102 Workplace Democracy and Self-Management for a presentation and discussion on co-management with Samantha McGavin, program manager with Inter Pares. As an organization, Inter Pares has a unique democratic co-management structure, where by management decisions are made collectively and through committees.

Please email Amanda Wilson (awilson@ustpaul.ca) with any questions.

Samantha McGavin is a member of the Asia team, focusing on Inter Pares' Burma program. Previously, she was a fundraising manager (2002–2008) and then communications director (2008–2017). She also contributes to human resource policy development, public policy engagement, and Inter Pares' migrant justice and mining justice work in Canada.

Please note that the event will be held in English, but participants are welcome to pose questions in French or English.

Inter Pares – which means among equals – believes in solidarity, not charity, as an approach to international cooperation. For over 40 years, we have worked closely with courageous activists and more than a hundred inspiring organizations throughout the world to build peace, advance justice and globalize equality.
