The World Policy Institute understands that policymakers and opinion leaders need creative ways to catalyze innovation and engage wider coalitions in solving some of the world’s biggest challenges. By working with artists focused on the same issues, this cross-cutting initiative seeks to build a new, collaborative model for social change.
In Every Nation for Itself: Winners and Losers in a G-Zero World, World Policy Institute Senior Fellow Ian Bremmer illustrates a historic shift in the international system and the world economy—and an unprecedented moment of global uncertainty.
Dear Friends of the World Policy Institute:
It’s almost here! World Policy Around the Table is just a week away on May 2 at The TimesCenter.
We’re delighted that actress and activist Julia Ormond will join us as our special guest to talk about her work as Founder and President of the Alliance to Stop Slavery and End Trafficking (ASSET), which creates, advances and supports systemic changes to eradicate slavery at the source. ASSET was the chief organizational sponsor of the California Transparency in Supply Chains Law (TISC) of 2010, a consumer rights disclosure bill requiring major manufacturers and retailers to make public their policy on trafficking and slavery all the way down their products supply chains.
She will join emcee Kathleen Hays of Bloomberg to help us celebrate collaborative approaches across creative, academic, diplomatic, business and NGO circles to change the world for the better. For their global outlook; fresh, constructive, solution-focused approaches; and ability to develop wider circles of influence in addressing shared global challenges, we honor Kishore Mahbubani of the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy at the National University of Singapore for his policy thought leadership and Catalyst, represented by Ilene H. Lang, for its think-and-do leadership.
World Policy Around the Table is no typical gala: no rubber chickens, no tedious speeches. It’s more like the 30 best dinner party conversations going on all at once. Following the awards presentation and conversation, World Policy fellows and eminent friends lead lively individual table discussions around the room on these topics: sustainable global cities, entrepreneurship ecosystems, closing the gender gap, security across borders, heading off financial crisis, and the arts-policy nexus across themes. Check out our roster of stellar table leaders HERE.
We have only 50 tickets left - sign up HERE before the event sells out.
See you May 2 Around the Table!
All my best,
