We’ve searched through the Internet to find the most anticipating speeches this year which are predicted to revoluntise your thinking and behaviours.

Andrea Hoffman – Accelerating Democracy: Creating Pathways To Prosperity

Upcoming Speeches To Watch Out For

Culture Shift Lab’s CEO Andrea Hoffman, will speak at the Milken Institute on Monday 2 May, 2016.

Description of Event

Below content was taken from Milken Institute’s website.

More than half a century after historic breakthroughs in civil rights, minorities in the U.S. continue to be unfairly burdened by a consistent lack of access to opportunity.

On one hand, minorities today are more likely than ever to participate in the highest levels of society, yet in our communities, inordinate numbers are jobless, live in poverty or earn far less than their privileged counterparts.

They also own fewer businesses and homes and have lower graduation rates. Such disparities are one of the unwelcome legacies of systemic discrimination, and they pose a serious threat to a thriving democracy.

This session will explore the dynamics of discrimination, including the collective cost we all pay when entire segments of a population are marginalised.

How do these social ills impede progress and opportunity, and what ideas hold the most promise for creating pathways to prosperity for the disenfranchised?

Date and time of event: Monday 2 May, 2016 / 10:45 am – 11:45 am
