Rise and Fall of a Family Business: The Constructive Use of Conflict

October 19 @ 7:30 am - 12:00 pm
Bridgewood Resort Hotel & Conference Center, 1000 Cameron Way
Neenah, WI 54956 United States

Presented by Doug Box, Box Family Advisors: There is no family business story that does not involve some degree of conflict. Excessive family conflict is one of the reasons many family-owned businesses do not make it into the next generation. Families in business together often provide the ultimate testing ground for managing conflict. Constructive conflict behavior can be learned, but most people have never seen such an approach modeled at home. Box provides a real-life example of the staggering impact that conflict can have on a family and relationships. He focuses on helping attendees avoid the mistakes his family made and how relationships can actually grow through the constructive use of conflict.

October 19 @ 10:30 am - November 1 @ 3:00 pm

Oshkosh, 54901 United States
Free

In the Allen Priebe Gallery, Milwaukee-based artist and UW Oshkosh alumnus Reginald Baylor will have paintings, fabric pieces and sculpture in his exhibition Collecting Myself. Baylor uses crisp lines, geometry and high-keyed colors to create artworks that are fundamentally about the American dream—what it was and what it has become. His work has been described as expressive and personal, spatially complex and gutsy. Baylor’s art includes references to ingenious cultural allusions, pop culture icons and stealthy references to art history. Exhibitions will run from October 11 - November 1 Gallery Hours: Monday - Thursday: 10:30 a.m.-3 p.m., 7 - 9 p.m. Friday: 10:30 - 3 p.m. Saturday and Sunday: 1-4 p.m. Located in the Arts and Communication Center main lobby, N 102.

Fair Trade Month Film Fest: Immokalee, USA

October 19 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm
Sage 4232, UWO campus, 835 High Ave
Oshkosh, Wisconsin 54901 United States

Every season, tens of thousands of migrant farmworkers converge on small communities like Immokalee, Florida, where they plant and harvest the food that Americans consume. A vast majority of these workers are undocumented, leaving them at the mercy of the large agribusinesses who hire them, the crew leaders who contract them and the landlords and businesses that profit from the seasonal arrival of migrant workers. Their “undocumented” legal status allows for a system of exploitation that leaves workers and their families to endure conditions and wages that rarely meet international human rights standards. Immokalee U.S.A. documents these daily experiences, leading the viewer to examine their own role in the issues migrant workers face. If you are driving to this event, you may park without a permit in Lot 7, surrounding Sage Hall. Please avoid any specially-marked spaces. A parking map is available here.
