Labor Market and Economic Update at LPZ

Join us for an enriching day at the Lincoln Park Zoo, where we will discuss the latest insights on the labor market and economy. Children are welcome – separate activities for them will be held during the adult presentation. Lunch will be served after both programs have concluded.

Presenter: Alex Chausovsky, Vice President of Analytics at the Miller Resource Group

The US economy is firmly on the back side of the business cycle, and a mild recession is likely on the horizon because of aggressive interest rate policy decisions by the Federal Reserve. However, not all is doom and gloom. Inflationary pressure is easing, and consumers remain willing and able to spend money due to a remarkably resilient job market.

This presentation will deliver practical and actionable advice designed to help decision makers plan for future economic conditions and continuously improve their company’s talent strategy. Attendees will walk away from the session with the following insights:

  • Time-sensitive economic events of public concern, including inflation, interest rates, labor market conditions, consumer spending, business investment and supply chain developments
  • Practical and actionable advice on how businesses can thrive in an increasingly complex labor market, including tactical strategies to improve talent-oriented initiatives
  • Tools that company leadership can use to become better data-driven decision makers in running their businesses



Zoo Activity Stations

The Lincoln Park Zoo will set up four activity stations (kids are free to hop from station to station and can stay as long as they’d like). Activities include:

  • Where’s Wildlife? Mobile Learning Station – Children can learn more about “Living Wildlife Friendly” as they explore a visual and tactile scavenger hunt of Tanzania
    • Facilitated by staff
  • Biomaterials – Interactive activities with African animal biomaterial
    • Claws, skulls, etc.
    • Facilitated by staff
  • Story Station – Children can curl up with a book in their very own lion den
    • The zoo will provide Africa-themed storybooks and African animal plushies
    • Not facilitated
  • Picture the Plains – Kids can add their art to a savanna landscape (a long stretch of butcher paper with savanna background)
    • Not facilitated

Knuckleball Comedy

An experienced group of comedians will host an interactive improvisation workshop for your children. You and your little ones will be in stiches as staff leads them on a wild ride of interactive and hilarious scenes. As you watch your children perform, you’ll see them start to learn new ways to think creatively, act on their feet and become good active listeners. More information available here.

*Recommend age is 5+ for this event. Attendees under
5 years old will need a chaperone during all activities.
