Building 14, 14S-130 (The Nexus, Hayden Library)
160 MEMORIAL DR, Cambridge, MA 02139

Carolyn Chen's Work Pray Code: When Work Becomes Religion in Silicon Valley explores how high-tech workplace culture employs spiritual practices to exploit productivity, often at the expense of workers and their communities.  Please join us for a small group discussion of this book, the Spring 2023 MIT Reads selection.

This event is open to current members of the MIT community. Lunch will be served to registered attendees.

The Nexus is situated on the first floor of the Hayden Library, MIT's Building 14, located at 160 Memorial Drive. The room is on the river side of the library reading room, behind the Courtyard Cafe and across the room from the library service desk. If you have trouble finding it please ask at the service desk.

Accessibility: Your participation makes this program better. Please email if you require an accommodation in order to join us.

Work Pray Code was selected in partnership with the Addir Fellows Interfaith Dialogue Program.
