Think Tank 2.0: New Leadership for a New Vision?
A conversation with four thought leaders for the 21st century

Recent months have seen leadership transitions at four of the most prominent U.S. public policy institutes:

Janice Nittoli at the Century Foundation
Neera Tanden at the  Center for American Progress
Sarah Rosen Wartell at the Urban Institute
Felicia Wong at the Roosevelt Institute

This moment of generational change, in which women of the post-baby boom age, two of them people of color, now lead in a field traditionally dominated by white men, is a good time to take a look at where the American think tank is going at a time of disillusionment with politics, renewed debate about the role of government, and a 24-7 information environment which demands different approaches to intellectual and public discourse.

Join Gara LaMarche, Senior Fellow at NYU's Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, for a public conversation with these four new leaders.

A light breakfast will be served.
