Essential work, mothering as social change


This program offers 2 types of tickets: in person and online only. Please pre-register to receive a link to the live event.

Security protocols for in-person attendance:

• We follow best practices established by the CDC and state and local guidelines.
• All guests, staff and volunteers must be fully immunized. Guest must present proof of full vaccination with photo ID
• Masks are encouraged inside (if you don’t have one and would like one, ask our reception for a free mask).
• In-person capacity is limited.

Our LEED Gold-certified building is designed to cool with the outside air, using digitally controlled movable windows and large ceiling fans. We deploy additional HEPA filters inside to clean the air. This all adds up to increased cleaning of surfaces throughout the building.

We welcome donations made upon registration to support the production of our online programming.

Copies of Essential Work are available for purchase upon registration (US domestic delivery only).

This program is part of the Commonwealth Club’s Good Lit series, underwritten by the Bernard Osher Foundation.
