Scrivner Institute Hosts AEI President Robert Doar and Aspen Institute Scholar Bruce Reed

September 17

4:00pm - 6:30pm

Sie Complex, Room 5025, Maglione Hall

Please Join Us for an Afternoon with AEI President Robert Doar!

On behalf of The Scrivner Institute of Public Policy at the Josef Korbel School of International Studies, it is my pleasure to invite you to the first in a series of exciting campus-wide events, which will feature outstanding scholars and notable national authorities, discussing topics of vital importance and national interest.

The future of work and the search for meaningful engagement in society is one such issue that has focused critical attention on our nation's priorities at a time of rapid change in our politics, the workplace, and the economy—all of which have challenged public policy, government, and industry to adapt, or lose credibility.

On Tuesday, September 17th, American Enterprise Institute (AEI) President and Morgridge Scholar, Robert Doar, together with Aspen Institute Co-Chair of the Future of Work Initiative, Bruce Reed, will discuss the state of opportunity in America, with an eye towards how our economy and public policy can together encourage continued employment, economic mobility, and civic health.

It is our pleasure to invite you to a special Scrivner Institute Program from 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM, reception to follow, at Maglione Hall, located on the fifth floor of the Sie International Complex, to listen to Robert Doar and Bruce Reed present their thoughts on an emerging bipartisan consensus concerning "work, skills, and community," introduced by Fritz Mayer, Dean of the Josef Korbel School of International Studies.

Doar and Reed will outline how a changing labor market, a safety net currently sending mixed messages about the importance of work and family, and a fraying sense of civil society are part of a complex equation that will require the best efforts of educational institutions, government, and corporations to rethink their roles in supporting a dynamic society and in re-imagining the social contract. They will present their thoughts on an emerging bipartisan consensus concerning "work, skills, and community."

Please RSVP for this event to [email protected] by Friday, September 13th.
