Rome -- Humanizing work

A series of conferences was organized by the Elis association under the title “Work at the beginning of the new century.” The intended audience included especially those involved in providing professional guidance to young people.

The first meeting, on March 20, featured Giuliano Amato, Italian Secretary of the Treasury, and Pier Paolo Donati, Professor of Sociology at the University of Bologna. The topic of the conference was “Work in the Post-Industrial Era.”

Professor Donati explained that “the aim of these meetings is to understand the changes taking place over the medium and long term and to study, with a broad vision, strategies for the promotion of work.”

The second meeting, held on May 23, was on “Professional Formation in the Era of Globalization.” It brought together executives of telecommunications companies, employment agencies and government organizations in this sector, many of which have collaborated in training programs run by Centro Elis, a corporate work of the Opus Dei Prelature.

The third conference was held in early December. Professor Hernan Fitte, a professor of the social teaching of the Church at the Pontifical University of the Holy Cross, gave a presentation entitled “Work in the Theological Thought of the Twentieth Century.” The series was concluded by Antonio Fazio, Director of the Bank of Italy.
