Scrivner Institute Hosts Bob Doer and Bruce Reed from AEI

September 17 @ 3:00 pm - 8:00 pm

You’re Invited to an Afternoon with AEI President Robert Doar!

Central to the mission of the Scrivner Institute of Public Policy at the University of Denver is to focus attention on critical national issues. The future of work and the search for meaningful engagement in society is one such issue.

On September 17, American Enterprise Institute President and Morgridge Scholar, Robert Doar, and 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. 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 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.

It is our pleasure to invite you to this special Scrivner Institute Program at 4:00 PM, 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 bi-partisan consensus concerning “work, skills, and community,” moderated by Fritz Mayer, Dean of the Korbel School of International Studies.  Following an opportunity for questions from the audience, please join us for a short reception.

Please RSVP for this event to gabby.reed.du@gmail.com by Tuesday, September 10th.
