What are "Ideas at Work"?
"Ideas at Work" are free online sessions offered to the public that focus on connecting big ideas to real-world applications. Through interviews and "Ask Me Anything"-style discussion with experts on a range of topics, participants will discover new perspectives and practical guidance for bringing about positive change in their community. .
Each session will last for one hour and fifteen minutes, and the Center will facilitate the discussion online via Zoom video chat. These sessions are specifically designed for people with busy schedules who are eager to learn and discuss important economic, political, and/or social issues.
Participants will be required to use an online video chat platform in order to recreate the feel of an in-person interview and Q&A. A brief tutorial of the platform will be shared prior to the session.
Ideas That Change the World
The Center will select topics and speakers of interest that spark deep conversations and highlight the stories of individuals around the world that put ideas into action to improve lives. We welcome suggestions! Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org to share your ideas of future speakers.
