Some of the topics to be discussed include: Power; Lobbying; Policy Making; Education; Activism; Advocacy; Census; Voting and more.
The 21st Century Workforce
The pandemic taught us that work is no longer commuting into the office for 8 hour days 5 days a week. But of course, we have lost the social and collaborative element along the way. What does the Future Workforce of NY look like? Topics will include Civil Service (Benefits, Unions); Future Industries; Diversity & Inclusion; Human Capital Investment.
Criminal Justice Reform and Public Safety
Three years ago, New York State adopted a law ending the assessment of cash bail in most cases involving misdemeanors and nonviolent felonies. Here, we review what we know so far about criminal justice reform and its impact on public safety and what can be done to change the current systems.
Economic Freedom and Generational Wealth
This panel will help foster and nurture entrepreneurial ideas and help provide access to the capital needed to build a business. It will address targeted initiatives that promote equitable economic policy and financial literacy to build new generational wealth. This discussion can perhaps help to close deep-rooted racial wealth gaps and create new economic freedom. Specific topics will include Financial Literacy; Entrepreneurship; Opportunity Zones; Building Generational Wealth; Land Ownership
