Shout out to SUNY-Empire State College

Many thanks to the folks at SUNY-Empire State College (where I earned a Master’s degree in Labor and Policy Studies in 1999) for running this generous interview by Helen Susan Edelman, profiling my work on workplace bullying in the Spring 2010 issue of Connections, the ESC magazine:

Workplace bullying is a problem wherever there are human beings, says David Yamada, and he is dedicated to redressing this destructive phenomenon.  A lawyer and law professor at Suffolk University Law School in Boston, Yamada is inspired by a vision of a work environment that affirms and dignifies individuals; he promulgates this ideal in efforts to encourage the legal system, institutions and individuals to address workplace bullying.

Empire State College: A higher education pioneer

Empire State has been and remains a pioneering institution in developing and offering innovative degree programs. I have been an active alumnus because I believe wholeheartedly in its mission as a public, flexible learning college for adults who want to make a difference in their workplaces and communities.  Recently I joined the Graduate Dean’s Advisory Board, and for several years I have sponsored a modest scholarship for a graduate student pursuing studies in labor relations.
