The 2017 Gathering of Leaders is almost here! Leading up to our annual convening March 1-2 in Atlanta, we’ll be sharing some of last year’s standout moments and lessons.

The fault lines—political, social and economic—exposed in the run up to the 2016 Presidential election reveal much about the state of the nation. What do they tell us? What is left out? At a moment when old political frameworks and alliances seem unable to offer clear and compelling ways forward, what opportunities might exist for social innovators and problem solvers? Three leaders will help us make sense of our context and how we do the work of expanding equity and opportunity in the period ahead.

HEATHER McGHEE (President, Demos)
AVIK ROY (Senior Fellow, Manhattan Institute; Opinion Editor, Forbes)
SHIRLEY SAGAWA (President & CEO, Service Year Alliance) – moderator
