A relatively new focus for the Prevention Research Center is how we might use innovation and entrepreneurship – both contexts and methods – to promote the health, well-being, and human flourishing.
First, Dr. Small will present how human development and prevention science theories contribute to a new understanding of workplace flourishing. She’ll share new findings that predict engagement and corporate citizenship behaviors among young STEM employees (spoiler alert – it’s not foosball or free food). Finally, Dr. Small will discuss new opportunities for the PRC to lead the field in innovation and public impact research through partnerships with other academic units and institutions, industry, and start-ups.
This seminar is free and open to the public.
