Workplace Week New York 2019: Full Program Announced

Workplace Week New York is a week-long festival that celebrates workplace excellence, innovation and creativity.
  • Workplace Week New York is a week-long conference focusing on all things workplace.
  • The event explores how leadership, culture, design and technology can increase the effectiveness of individuals and teams within a workplace.
  • The 2019 event includes 90-minute ‘behind the scenes’ tours of some of New York’s most inspiring workplaces.

Workplace Week New York (24-28 June 2019), organized by Advanced Workplace Associates (AWA), is returning to the city for a second year at the end of the month.

Ticketed events and tours throughout the workplace festival will once again raise funds for official charity partner, the I Have A Dream Foundation (NY).

In summer 2018, the leading industry event raised over $20,000 for the charity that provides individualized social, emotional, and academic support to young people from low-income communities.

More than 20 of New York’s most impressive and inspiring organizations across the city will open their doors in order to explore how leadership, culture, design and technology all work together to increase the effectiveness and morale of every individual, team and community within a workplace.

The full program has now been announced. It includes exclusive tours, stimulating discussions to understand how business leaders can make a dramatic difference to the employee experience, and 90-minute ‘behind the scenes’ tours of some of New York’s most inspiring workplaces.
